Anderson University sophomore Graham Hopkins, a music business major, has taken on a grueling summer task. He is traveling the nation with nearly nonstop competitions and practices with the drum and bugle corp the Bluecoats.
The Bluecoats, a marching band based in Canton, Ohio, competes in Drum and Bugle Corp International (DCI). The corps was created by two Canton police officers and a businessman in 1972 as a program for the Canton Police Boys Club. It wasn’t long before fans cheered them on with the call of “Bloo” at their performances.
