Welcome to the electronic home of the Great Alliance of Seniors. We are a group of drum corps veterans who come together once a year to entertain ourselves. We have just recently united for our 30th GAS reunion and will soon be posting more information on our 31st GAS in 2015.

The various organizations that form our alliance host and attend many events throughout the year that are geared towards drum and bugle corps fans and the general public. In contrast, the purpose of the GAS reunion is to have a venue where we can entertain and appreciate each other. This entertainment comes in the form of playing drums and horns as well as singing in choruses, performing skits and sometimes even dance and visual displays. Drum corps that normally face off in competition can for one weekend, come together as friends.

The GAS is a perfect event for friends young and old to make and enjoy music. Like many things in drum corps, the only possible explanation of what a GAS reunion is like is for you to experience it for yourself. Please consider joining us this year!
