Who Are We?
Coming from the heart of Cajun Country, Louisiana Stars Drum and Bugle Corps is proud to represent the state of Louisiana while giving young adults the opportunity to develop musical and social skills as part of its performing arts program. As a high-performing, competitive marching arts ensemble, we travel around the country during the summer months competing against other drum corps from around the world. We are the only drum and bugle corps in the state of Louisiana recognized by Drum Corps International and we have been acknowledged by the Governor of Louisiana as official ambassadors of the state of Louisiana. As an officially recognized Drum Corps International Open Class Drum Corps, our mission is to prosper character development, improved self-confidence, and self-esteem; have students learn the value of teamwork; and learn the value of responsibility as well as integrity, sacrifice, and excellence. Students will meet and work with people with diverse backgrounds and origins and make new, lifelong friends!
Why Does This Matter?
Participation in a drum corps is a dramatic, positive experience for most young people. Each corps offers a unique combination of education, life experience, and tradition. At the heart of the drum corps experience is a set of values – dedication, discipline, commitment, and achievement through teamwork – all of this enhances the student’s life. Young people soon discover that dedication and hard work enable them to achieve tremendous success. Success, in turn, promotes confidence in their abilities. Students learn and improve valuable personal skills like teamwork, time management, and problem solving.
Donate today and help us grow our organization in order to provide a valuable and lasting performing arts education for young adults in and around Louisiana!

Stars To Geaux
Taking a caravan of charter busses, vans, equipment trucks, and a food trailer on the road across the country is the single greatest expense of the Louisiana Stars. This summer, we will be traveling 5,500 miles across the southern and midwest regions of the United States. By helping us get ON THE GEAUX, you are helping us keep the Louisiana Stars experience attainable for young performers across the country.
When you sponsor one or more miles of our journey, we will include your name or business in a season-end wrap up of our Stars To Geaux sponsors. For every $1,000 we raise, we will send our Stars To Geaux sponsors an exclusive clip of our show.
