Welcome!

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.

Come one, come all!

Even though our performances for 2017 have ended, we still have one last rehearsal left! Sunday, November 12 – Lyric Band Hall 2pm to 5pm for the horns and drums; St. Paul’s Lutheran Church 2pm to 4pm for the color guard, then to the Lyric to end the day.

We would love to see ALL of our current members at this rehearsal and of course, we are always looking for new members! Our members range in age from 14 to 80. There are no fees – we supply you with the equipment, uniform, instruction. You supply a pair of marching shoes and the desire to rehearse and perform with a diverse and wonderful group of folks you will soon call “Family”!

We hope to see all of you on November 12. Questions? Feel free to leave them here or send us an email!
