The Oregon Shadow Armada, formerly known as simply the Oregon Marching Band until 2008, was a drum corps-style summer marching band in the MACBDA competition circuit. It was based in Oregon, Wisconsin in the United States. In the summer of 2016, Shadow Armada competed as a Open-Class corps of Drum Corps International (DCI) under Shadow Drum and Bugle Corps.[1]


The marching band season begins June 21 and includes 15 events across Illinois and Wisconsin, and the finals performance in Traverse City, Michigan, for the Cherryland Band Classic during Traverse City's annual Nation Cherry Festival.[2][3]

5 Core Values[edit]

Musicianship: We uphold the highest standards of musicianship for ourselves and all those with whom we perform.

Unity: We are united among ourselves and as citizens of the world around us, considering how ALL of our actions affect our band family, our school, our community, and our world.

Sacrifice: We understand the supreme value in giving of oneself for the good of the whole.

Integrity: We adhere to high professional standards, knowing that when others can count on you, you will be able to count on them.

Courage: We do what is right despite adversity; we are bold and innovative, we finish what we start, we "go 100%" in all that we do.
