History
The Cincinnati Tradition Drum & Bugle Corps was formed in 1984. The founders, Tom Slade and Dan Hartwig decided to add to the championship drum line of the Siver Spectrum. With adding brass and color guard to the drum line, it was decided they needed a new name, thus the Cincinnati Tradition. With the help of the Pride of Cincinnati Drum & Bugle Corps which folded at the end of the 1984 season, they were able to acquire the much needed brass instruments. The Tradition were the Ohio VFW Parade Champions in 1984, 1985 and 1986. The Tradition took 1st Place at the 1988 Norwood Centennial Parade. They were also selected in 1988 to perform in the City of Cincinnati Bicentennial Parade. The Tradition took 2 years off in 1995 and 1996 to help Mike "Cozy" Baker form the Mirage Sr. Drum & Bugle Corps in Miamisburg, Ohio. In 1997 and 1998 some members went to march with the Bombardiers in Columbus, Ohio. In 1998 the Tradition came back to Cincinnati and have been active in the Tri-State area ever since. The Tradition performs in exhibitions in Cincinnati, Centerville, and the Columbus area.
Recent Years/Traditions
For most of its existence, Cincinnati Tradition has been considered a senior drum corps. In recent years, interest from high school students has allowed Tradition to transform into an all-age corps. For the past few seasons, Tradition has gone to the DCA championships as a mini-corps, but performed at local Ohio shows with a field show. Mini corps are all-age or senior drum corps who have no more than 21 performing members and perform their show standing on stage after Individual & Ensemble Performances.
Tradition, by rules of DCA, is an any-key ensemble. This means that all bell-front brass instruments are legal to play in competition, such as Bb trumpets, F mellophones, Bb Contra Bass tubas, etc. However, keeping with tradition of older drum corps, Tradition fields a corps of almost all G bugles. The current 2010 season has Tradition with a full G bugle line. This makes Tradition one of the last drum corps to field a full G bugle line. Other notable exceptions include The Commandant's Own U.S. Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, and The United States Naval Academy Drum and Bugle Corps. Not only does Tradition employ a full G bugle line, the corps is the only competing corps in the United States, DCA or DCI, to still use piston/rotor bugles. Several members of the baritone and contrbass sections play on older piston/rotor bugles. The entire Contra line of Tradition is non-chromatic, as all contra bugles are either piston/rotor or two piston valve. The baritone and euphonium bugle sections are a mix of piston/rotor, two valve, and three valve bugles. The mellophone section is three valve, as well as most of the soprano line, with a few two valve sopranos in the mix. The 2010 drumline is very strong, even marching drums built specific to the 2010 show.
