The Kingsmen Alumni Corps will be hosting an evening of drum corps performances on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2007, just two days before their performance at the DCI World Championship Semifinals at Rose Bowl Stadium. Keith Wilbur, spokesperson for the 300-member Kingsmen Alumni Corps said: "This is a perfect opportunity for friends, family, and fans of the drum corps activity to come and see the Kingsmen alumni in a small venue. We have intentionally set this up from the onset as an open seating event, in effect giving everyone the opportunity to view the performance up close and personal from whatever vantage point they desire." Also appearing with the Kingsmen Alumni Corps are Nicholson Pipe and Drums, Impulse and Pioneer. Gates open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. at Long Beach Veterans Stadium, 5000 E. Lew Davis St. Long Beach, CA 90808. Tickets cost $10 at the door for general admission seating. Find more information on this event at
