Horn Players on the Field

Start YOUR drum corps adventure with the Muchachos!

The Corps is seeking performers of all ages and abilities for all sections: battery percussion (drum line), front ensemble, horn/brass line, and color guard.

Not a brass player? Not a problem! Whatever your talent--dancing, singing, guitar, flute, clarinet, saxophone, baton, etc.--stop by! There is a spot for everyone!

Low tuition, no auditions** and family friendly!

We have instruments and equipment for all sections. What are you doing this summer? Come march with us!

The Muchachos Drum and Bugle Corps of Manchester, NH is a Drum Corps International (DCI) all-age corps performing in exhibition at the same shows as the elite corps of DCI. The Corps is looking to add to its brass, percussion and color guard sections for the 2018 performance season.

As an all-age corps, members range from 14* years old up through retirement age. While many members have performed previously—with other drum corps, including DCI Open and World Class corps, and with college and high school bands—the Muchachos is a teaching corps, dedicated to providing musical, color guard and marching instruction to all interested in drum corps performing arts.

Note: Submitting the form will bring you to the CorpsData website. After filling out additional information, you will be brought back to the Muchachos.org website.


Positions are available in all sections: color guard, brass and percussion, as well as additional support staff. We would love for you to join us, for a single season or for many. We take ourselves seriously (but not too seriously) and enjoy performing in front of both large and small audiences. Whether we are playing for the special needs children at Camp Fatima or big crowds at DCI World Class shows, we all get a kick out of being part of something special.

We offer you the opportunity to learn or improve your marching, playing and music abilities. We provide instruments; musical and guard instruction; uniforms; and bus transportation for away gigs. You will spend time around some really nice people with similar interest and love of music, and you will get to experience the excitement of performing in a group with a high quality show in front of adoring crowds!

Drop by our rehearsals if you want to hear more about our program. See our schedule on the web site for rehearsal dates and locations or contact us for more information or to speak with someone regarding membership.

*Members under the age of 14 are eligible to march in parades and may perform in field shows determined on a case-by-case basis.
