It has become necessary for the Lancers to move our 2015 “Profiles In Music,” a Drum & Bugle Corps Showcase to a new location. We will be presenting the show from the auditorium of the Red Lion High School at 200 Horace Mann Avenue in Red Lion, PA 17356. The date and time will remain the same at Saturday, April 11th, beginning at 6:00pm.
The Lancers want to ensure you the professional atmosphere you’ve become accustomed to at the “Profiles In Music” will continue, as well as the quality of those performing in the show. The 2015 show will include:
Blessed Sacrament Golden Knights of NJ
Connecticut Patriots of CT
Hawthorne Caballeros of NJ
Lancers Alumni of PA (the show hosts)
Reilly Raiders of PA
Saints Brigade of NY
U.S. Naval Academy of MD
the Westshoremen of PA
You can find a link to the homepages of each of the above groups on the “Profiles In Music” tab on this web site should you care to find additional information on them.
We’re hoping to provide our performers with another SOLD OUT house in April of 2015 and are also hopeful you will be able to be with us for that evening’s show. I can assure you it will be another thrilling show, and one you won’t want to miss. A link to purchase tickets will appear on the “Profiles In Music” tab before the beginning of the new year. It will provide you with any and all the information you will need to purchase your tickets in advance. Tickets will go on sale by mid-January, 2015.
We thank you for your continued support and will look forward to entertaining you April 11, 2015. Should you have any questions regarding this posting, please feel free to contact me at the address found on this web site. Have a wonderful Fall and Holiday Season.

The Lancers Senior Drum & Bugle Corps was originally organized in 1920 at the Harold H. Bair Post 14, American Legion in Hanover, PA. The marching group participated in concerts, parades, and competitions from its inception until 1983 and was at that time the oldest continuously operating drum and bugle corps in America. Due to financial and management challenges, the corps disbanded in 1983.
In the summer of 1990, a few former members planned a corps reunion, and by October, an alumni corps was once again on the street in Hanover. The corps has been steadily growing since that time and today boasts a roster of over 100 members and includes alumni from the 1950’s to the 1980’s, as well as high school and college students; members range in age from 15 to 75. The membership includes people from all walks of life and always welcomes interested participants.
The Lancers have been recognized as Hanover’s Music Ambassadors and have represented the community in prestigious events like the National Apple Blossom Parade in Winchester, VA, the National Cherry Blossom Parade in Washington, D.C., and numerous events throughout Pennsylvania and Maryland. The corps participated in “America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration” in Plymouth, MA in November of 2012 along with eight other alumni corps from New England, Pennsylvania and Canada.
