Founded in 1964, Blue Stars Drum and Bugle Corps was the silver medalist at the 1972 Drum Corps International World Championship, finishing just over a half a point away from winning the inaugural event. Competing as an Open Class unit for much of the late 1980s, ’90s and early ’00s, the corps won the World Championship title in its class in 1989, 1993, 2001 and 2003. Blue Stars began competing in the World Class ranks again in 2006.
