Evans and Promark had a very exciting week at the 2018 Drum Corps International (DCI) World Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana celebrating the success of their groups and sponsoring the lot in Military Park.

The Blue Devils took home a silver award (Evans & Promark), and the Bluecoats were awarded a bronze (Evans).

This year, Evans and Promark presented the DCI Lot at Military Park. In the lot, attendees could come interact with their favorite artists, watch groups as they warmed up, and check out some of the new products being showcased by Evans & Promark. Attendees also had the opportunity to experience a completely refreshed DCI lot.

Mark Perrett from The Grid Book Series hosted various Micro Camps where attendees could learn and work on their chops. BYOS and Amir Oosman held mini performances & clinics as well. Throughout the day, various ensembles like Spirit of Atlanta and The Blue Devils warmed up in the performance space, letting participants get up close and personal with their favorite corps.

The lot also featured the launch of Promark’s three newest marching products: the Tim Fairbanks Marching Snare Stick, the Tim Jackson Marching Tenor Stick and the Andrew Markworth Signature Keyboard Mallets.
