Fever is a junior drum corps based in Modesto, California.


  • The corps was formed in 2003, and draws many lines between the corps it is based on, Valley Fever.



The entire drum corps always listens to the corps song, "Hymsong on Phillip Bliss" by David Holsinger, on the way to every show on the bus. The hornline has always also listened to "Wonderboy" by Tenacious D right afterwards. In 2006, the corps only used one bus, so the entire corps listened to both. Also, it is a tradition for the hornline to play the corps song for the entire corps after a show followed by an explination of it's history for the members, along with personal meanings of the song from some veterans. The hornline plays it again after the final performance of the season.

In the years that the corps has marched a cymbal line, the cymbals kissed the suns on their shakos while comming off the field after a show. The bass drums have always performed each show with a Jolly Rancher under one wristband, to be eaten after the show.

It is also traditional for someone in the audience to yell "Fever's Hot!!!" right before the start of every show. This tradition was started by Richard Braun, and he makes sure it gets carried on each season.
