The Vikings Drum Corps have announced that they will be travelling to the USA in 2017. The corps from Tallaght will compete in the DCA circuit.

The year 2017 will become a very special year for The Vikings. They want to take part in the Drum Corps Associate World Championships, which take place at the Rhinos Stadium in Rochester - New York. The American adventure is part the organisation's 40th anniversary tour.

The Vikings changed from a marching band to a drum & bugle corps in 2014, and they have been very succesful in the Irish and European competition. Last year they were the first Irish group ever to make the Drum Corps Europe Premier Class Finals. They will again compete at the DCE European Championships this year.
