Jim McCann

There were several ENTIRE families that made up the Midlanders. Who can forget the McCann family - Tom (mellophone), Jim (pictured above on Baritone - he now plays a mean Contra in the Alumni Group!), Joan (color guard and rifle) and our dear departed friend Steve (drumline). Along with "Mom & Dad" (Lee and Vince) the McCann family was a cornerstone of the corps as were the Caskeys, Davidsons, Madzias, Hodges and many more, too numerous to mention.

Carolina Crown

From their 2013 DCI WORLD CHAMPION show - from the soundtrack to "The Abyss". One of the most moving pieces ever presented by a Drum Corps.


Santa Clara Vanguard

"Bring Him Home" at DCI Finals 2013. By far the best "all 'round" show of the year. SCV connected with audiences like no other corps in the world this year. Take a moment and enjoy one of the most beautiful pieces ever performed on a football field.

Thanks so much for supporting the corps and performance ensemble since 2007. We look forward to seeing many of you at various Social events our Alumni Organization are planning as we speak. It is after all, about friendships old and new.–Midlanders Music Group Director ~ W John MacFadden
