Following the announcement of the DCI SoundSport, Bristol, England on 21st March 2015, registration for the event is now open via the Drum Corps Europe website. The first group has already announced their participation: the Blue Barons Mini Corps from Glasgow.

DCE secretary Marco Janssen said “We’re delighted that the Blue Barons have chosen to participate in the SoundSport, Bristol show. It’s a long way from Glasgow to Bristol and we really appreciate the Barons travelling that distance to take part. It gives fans in southern England a marvellous opportunity to see this legendary Scottish corps and we would love to see other former corps use SoundSport as a way of reforming.”

The Barons last appeared in DCUK during the 1980s and were British Drum Corps Champions in 1985. Their show is titled ‘Quintessence’ and refers to the four building blocks of the physical universe: earth, water, air and fire. The intangible fifth element, or ‘quintessence’ salutes the intrinsic character of the Blue Barons era of drum corps.

The registration fee for SoundSport Bristol is just £30. Further information on the SoundSport, Bristol, England show is available from DCE by emailing The registration form and SoundSport Bristol Information Package are available on The registration will close on Sunday, January 25th, 2015.
