DrumCorpsWiki is a collaborative encyclopedia of all things relating to Drum Corps. The idea is based on the WikiPedia, where thousands of volunteers, mavens, and genuinely crazy people have generated an amazing resource using Wiki technology.

The only way this site can be successful is with your help. Please feel free to contribute to the expansion of this encyclopedia. You can start with making sure a page exists for the Drum Corps with which you are most familiar. Share your knowledge and spread the word to your friends; this has the possibility of being the most comprehensive Drum Corps informational website.

We could also use a new logo.

DrumCorpsWiki was founded by Harlan Landes. You can help defray the cost of hosting this website by donating.
