Indianapolis Ignition


Paul Warner was looking for an outlet to start a Drum and Bugle Corps in Indiana. After he met some of the Drum Corps International staff at the 2014 Midwest Clinic, Indianapolis Ignition was born. DCI provided the opportunity to perform asquickly as possible in their new SoundSport program. In the spring of 2015, local music professionals from the Indianapolis area came together and brought Indianapolis Ignition to life.

The 2015 season consisted of 4 spring training camps, one week of “everyday” rehearsals, and two weeks of practices and performances. The season culminated with a 2 day, 600 mile overnight tour in which Ignition performed at two DCI shows. The season ended with a Best in Show Award at the Bowling Green SoundSport Competition. Building on the success of the initial season, Ignition is seeking open class certification from DCI.

Indianapolis Ignition will be performing at DRUMS on the OHIO this year prior to our show and at intermission. We are very excited about this new Indiana drum corps. We wish them the best and hope to see them in compettion in future years.
