MIGHTY ST. JOE'S, AN ALL AGE DRUM & BUGLE CORPS, WANTS YOU
RECRUITING NOW FOR 2017- OPENINGS IN ALL SECTIONS, EVERYONE IS WELCOME!!!
As the corps begins yet another season, Mighty St. Joe's Drum and Bugle Corps from Leroy NY is proud to continue to be one of the oldest, active, non-competitive corps participating in events year round. The staff at MSJ would like to continue to invite anyone interested or those who may have the desire to fulfill a life long dream to play with this great organization to come out and get on board for 2017. Our members are dedicated to keeping the "good-times, old times" alive in the drum corps world and look forward to the challenges facing them as each new season approaches. As the corps enters yet another season there has been a conscious decision to look for more events that suit our current members and those who may not be able to keep up with the rigors of marching and playing on a regular basis. The corps committed to several indoor and outdoor standstill concerts for 2016 and is actively pursuing more of these types of events for the future. This doesn't mean that the corps is giving up on doing parades, which so many of us enjoy. It just means management and the staff of the corps are looking at ways to attract more people who may not be able to keep up with certain parts of the activity that MSJ has been so well respected for in the past. So come out, check out the corps and be a part of this great organization. Think of it as an opportunity, not a commitment, to do something so many of us have enjoyed for years - entertaining the only way real drum corps people like it.

MSJ 2017 Mission Statement
Our goals are to embrace the corps’ dedication and enthusiasm to our performances, along with realizing the need for discipline, hard work and persistence. Management’s desire is to create an environment where everyone has the opportunity to play while continuing to promote old-time, good time drum corps entertainment through engaging in concerts, parades, exhibitions, and similar events. Also our mission is to promote musicianship, friendship and teamwork among the members of this organization to encourage personal growth and a sense of belonging to the MSJ Family, and to recognize and applaud our peers for their many successes throughout the year.
