TAMA Marching, the Oregon Crusaders Drum & Bugle Corps and OC Indoor have partnered for the 2018 season.

The Oregon Crusaders Drum & Bugle Corps is a world-class corps, based in Portland, Oregon. The Oregon Crusaders is an organization that has a history of success in the form of an undefeated Division III championship in 2004, as well as another undefeated Open Class (formerly Divisions II & III) championship in 2012. 

"We are beyond exited to enter into this new partnership with TAMA Drums,” said Mike Stevens, OC indoor director and OC percussion arranger. “I have loved their kits since I began playing on them in my early years, and now the chance to outfit both The Oregon Crusaders and Oregon Crusaders Indoor with these incredible instruments in the pageantry arena is nothing short of amazing. To be able to play on instruments designed by my legendary teacher and mentor Tom Float and to work with him is such an honor, and we will do our best to do them justice! Thank you so much to Andy Wozniak and team for this wonderful opportunity!”

"On behalf of the Oregon Crusaders, I am thrilled to begin this partnership with TAMA, and to be able to provide the members of OC and OC Indoor with such high-quality percussion instruments," said Mike Quillen, executive director.
