CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The unmistakable sounds of brass and drums will fill the air Friday, July 15, as Casper’s Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps perform.

The 7 p.m. Drums Along the Rockies show at Bison Stadium at South High School will feature the corps that has spent hours rehearsing for their 2022 season. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $18 for students, seniors and military.

The Battalion, The Academy, and Mandarins will also be present at the event.

This year’s Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps group arrived at Casper College on June 4 before moving over to Natrona County High School on June 12, according to Corps Director Mike Gough. The band essentially lived at the school until they hit the road this month.

“Our program this year, thematically, is based on oil,” Gough said. “We’ve got a bit oil tower prop set piece that they’re going to climb all over.”

This is the 64th season for the corps, which originated in Casper. However, the band was spending more time elsewhere before returning home during COVID.

“Last year was the first time we were able to come back for such a sustained period, and this year we’re here even longer,” he said. “It’s neat to be back.”
