Two members of the Duston-based Liberty Drum Corps will spend their summer touring America as part of the Coastal Surge Drum and Bugle Corps.

Orin Willis, 19, and 18-year old Simi Gill have flown to the US for intensive training before going on the Drum Corps International tour.

The tour will culminate in the World Championships at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts where the audience will number over 15,000.

This will be Orin’s second season with Coastal Surge having spent last Summer with the corps playing auxiliary/rack percussion.

While Orin and Simi are in the States, Liberty will be performing at the marching band contest being held at Daventry Town FC.
