CROSSMENCrossmen Productions, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) musical organization assisting young
people in becoming outstanding individuals through the arts.
In October of 1974, the 507 Hornets and Keystone Regiment merged in the outskirts of Pennsylvania to form what is now Crossmen. Since then, the Crossmen have grown to become a perennial Drum Corps International (DCI) World Champion Finalist, reaching DCI Finals 23 times in the corps’ nearly 40-year history. The 2014 DCI Season is the Crossmen's 40th National Tour. Based in San Antonio, Texas, Crossmen are the only DCI World Class Drum Corps within the Lone Star State. From our humble beginnings in West Chester, Pennsylvania, Crossmen have served thousands of students throughout its 40 year history, providing not only music education, but life-lessons to carry with them as they leave the world of drum corps for a future in life. In the fall of 2006 The Crossmen moved operations to San Antonio from our former home in Allentown, Pennsylvania. In 2007, we were able to re-establish ourselves as an independent organization as we moved our headquarters nearly 2,000 miles to San Antonio, TX.
