Belleville's Musical Ambassadors


Spanning four decades, the Black Knights served as the musical ambassadors representing the metro-east area.

Welcome Back Black Knight Alumni

The Black Knights Drum and Bugle Corps have represented the Metro-East in a long and glorious lifespan that reached across four decades. From the corp's beginnings in 1953 until its finale in 1989 the drum corps travelled over one-million miles entertaining millions of people and providing experiences for local youth that can never be replaced.

This site invites your input. Send us your memories of your time in the corps. We'll post them to remind others and ourselves about this wonderful era in Metro-East culture and the formative years in many of our lives.

Sign in On Our Guest Book

Soon we will be installing a guestbook / forum on this site where you can sign in and leave a message for your fellow alumni. We'll keep you posted when we get it up and running!
