Our 2014 DCA competitive season has kicked into high gear after a solid performance at the Kiltie Klassic in Racine, WI. Next up is our season finale competitive performance in the Twin Cities at Sounds of Minnesota on Friday, August 15th at 7:00PM. This year the show has moved to a beautiful new venue – St. Thomas Academy High School in Mendota Heights. Come out and give us a strong send off to the DCA Championships and watch this fun line-up of all-age corps and ensembles:

  • Brio Brass – Minneapolis, MN
  • Chops, Inc. – Minneapolis, MN
  • Govenaires – St. Peter, MN
  • Kilties – Racine, WI
  • Minne-Brass

On Saturday, August 16th we perform with the same line-up in St. Peter at the Govenaires’ home show – Drum Corps Expo.

Happy Independence Day!

Minnesota Brass would like to wish everyone a fun and safe 4th of July.

The corps will be marching in the Delano 4th of July Parade which starts at 10:30AM Friday. Come out and see the snazzy new parade uniforms.

If Apple Valley is closer to your home, you’re in luck, as the corps is pulling double duty and will also be marching in the Apple Valley Freedom Days Parade, which starts at 1:00PM.

Hope to see you out on the parade route!

2014 Minnesota Brass members welcomed past member Alex Cary back to Minnesota at the Thunder of Drums drum and bugle corps show on June 30 in Mankato.

Alex “Care Bear” Cary is a 2013 Anoka High School graduate who played snare in the Minnesota Brass 2013 production, “Primal.” For 2014 he’s marching with the Troopers of Casper, Wyoming, a DCI World Class corps. After the Troopers’ performance, Minnesota Brass members Tony Peterson (baritone) and Jess Belcher (euphonium) met up with Alex to wish him well on tour because this was the Troopers’ last Minnesota stop on the corps’ summer schedule.

Alex said he was excited to be part of the Troopers organization, laying down beats from percussion writer Paul Rennick. We wish him luck on tour, knowing he will always be a part of the Minnesota Brass family.
