DEG Provides New Instruments for BDB


Concord, CA - January 27, 2001 - The Blue Devils "B" Division II Drum and Bugle Corps (BDB) is proud to announce the continued support from DEG Music Products, Inc. with an endorsement that will provide Dynasty Marching Brass and Percussion instruments to this program. Many thanks to Mark Schafer CEO of DEG Music Products, Allan Murray, and all the dedicated people at DEG Music Products for their help and support.

BDB eagerly awaits the arrival of the shipment from DEG which includes all new B-flat brass instruments. As part of the agreement by DEG and The Blue Devils last year, the Blue Devils "A" Corps will be receiving new percussion instruments. The current percussion instruments will be passed to BDB and eventually will be passed to the youngest marching unit, the Blue Devils "C" Corps.

"Once again the DEG team has shown their strong commitment to The Blue Devils with their support of all programs in our organization," said David Gibbs, Executive Director of The Blue Devils. "Dynasty instruments were critical to our successes last year and we are extremely excited about the future of this strong partnership."

These new instruments will be used in an exciting summer season being planned by the BDB.

"Our Dynasty marching instruments have been the market leader in the marching band and drum corps market for many years," stated Mark Schafer CEO of DEG Music Products, Inc. "Our partnership with The Blue Devils and their staff has continued to grow in this second year of a close relationship."

Originally formed as a training corps for the Blue Devils ‘A’ Corps, the contemporary BDB has a multifaceted purpose. While we aim to cross-reference staff for consistent training, the corps has defined itself as a solid division II program servicing the western states. BDB has had the privilege of participating in the DCI Championships four times, in 1977-78, 1991 and 1997. They earned Finalist status in 1991 (Class A-60) and 1997 (division II). In 1998, the corps sent a select group to Japan for the World Marching Band Festival in Kanagawa, where they earned the Governor of Kanagawa Prefecture Award.
