Perhaps there's no better way to recognize St. Patrick's Day, than by taking a look at Drum Corps International's resident Irish experts, Pioneer.

From the corps' uniforms, to its musical selections, Milwaukee's finest have been bringing the Luck o' the Irish to the drum corps field for 50 years.

Celebrating the corps' golden anniversary in 2011, Drum Corps International Magazine interviewed Pioneer Director and DCI Hall of Fame Member Roman Blenski this winter to learn more about the origins of this corps once known as the Imperials of St. Patrick.
