The Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps (formerly the Holy Name Cadets, Cadets of Garfield, Garfield Cadets, and Cadets of Bergen County) is a world-class competitive junior drum and bugle corps. Based in Erie, Pennsylvania, The Cadets was one of the thirteen founding corps of Drum Corps International (DCI), is a ten-time DCI World Champion, and is the oldest continuously active junior drum and bugle corps in North America.

Charles Mura, Michael Koeph, and the Rev. Edwin Garrity of the Holy Name Catholic parish in Garfield, New Jersey founded the Holy Name Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps in 1934 as an activity for the boys in the parish. The corps quickly became one of the top competitive corps in the country.

For nearly a century, The Cadets has been a leader in the marching arts activity, pushing the boundaries of what is possible in marching arts movement, instrumentation, and, most recently, technology. It has won 10 American Legion National Championships and 10 Drum Corps International World Championships.

Each summer, The Cadets field a corps of 165 talented brass musicians, percussionists, and color guard performers from across the U.S. and the world. The Cadet’s members range in age from about 17 to 22.

As a highly competitive drum corps, The Cadets spends the summer perfecting one “show” — an 11-minute program performed on a standard football field. Its shows display extravagant musical excellence, marching precision, color, drama, dance, and emotion. Our performers march and dance in intricate formations coordinated with the musical productions they perform simultaneously.
