David Gibbs - DCI Hall of Fame
Inducted in 2002
David Gibbs is no stranger to anyone in drum corps today. His work as director of the Blue Devils has led the corps to multiple Drum Corps International World Championships.
Upon aging out of the organization as both a soprano player and a drum major, David became part of the corps' visual staff and went on to design some of the corps' most memorable visual programs. In 1991, he became only the third corps director in Blue Devils' history.
David's scope reaches far beyond the corps. He has established the Diablo Youth Symphony and oversees all the programs within the Blue Devils' organization. He has also served as Chairman of the Drum Corps International Board of Directors. Today, the strength of Drum Corps International is a far different image than what David found almost a decade ago.
David is known well for his visible contributions to the activity, but it may well be his behind-the-scenes contributions that earned him his induction into the Drum Corps International Hall of Fame.
