The 15 time champion Reading Buccaneers Drum and Bugle Corps is a not-for-profit, education oriented, musical organization dedicated to providing its members with a unique performing experience. The Buccaneers are a charter member of the Drum Corps Associates (DCA) and compete annually for the DCA Championship. Additionally, the Bucs perform in various venues including, parades, exhibitions, concerts, and field shows.
As the 2018 Drum Corps Associates season begins to take shape the Reading Buccaneers are looking to continue building upon the progress they made in 2017 with purchasing much needed equipment. Our target for 2018 is to begin replacing our aging tubas, which we’ve used since 2007 and need to be replaced as soon as possible, and also begin replacing our vibraphones.
In 2017, to celebrate the corps’ 60th anniversary, we launched the corps’ most ambitious fundraising effort ever – the 60 for 60 Campaign. Thanks to the generous support of many alumni and friends, the corps raised more than $53,000. Your support enabled us to acquire a new equipment truck, much needed color guard equipment and front ensemble equipment.
The Reading Buccaneers rely heavily on the your support and are thankful and appreciative of any amount you are able to donate.
