Distant Thunder Show Corps Uniforms

Distant Thunder Show Corps, from Sharnbrook, Bedfordshire, Great Britain, were founded in 1999 in a joint venture between Sharnbrook Upper School and the disbanded but highly regarded Buccaneer Drum & Bugle Corps. The corps competes in BYBA and DCE, and is looking to compete in both DCUK and DCI in the future.

Distant Thunder are endorsed by Dynasty Musical Instruments, Vic Firth Sticks & Mallets and Kelly Mouthpieces.
