Blue Devils are DCI World Champions 2007 

Report supplied by

The Blue Devils completed their three-day sweep of the 2007 Drum Corps International World Championships Saturday night, winning the final show of the season in impression fashion with a 98.000 and sweeping the Brass, Percussion, Ensemble Visual and General Effect caption awards.

After lagging behind the second-place Cadets for much of the season, the Concord, Calif.-based Blue Devils surged in the final two weeks to take the corps’ 12th overall World Championship. The crowd included many alumni celebrating the corps’ 50th anniversary at the Rose Bowl, practically in the Devils’ backyard. 

“I’ve been involved since ’74 and this is by far the biggest show, the biggest win, the biggest performance ever by the Blue Devils,” said corps director David Gibbs. “I don’t know if we can ever top this one. It’s very, very special. It’s been an incredible year.” Gibbs attributed the corps’ end-of-season push to the members: “The kids are awesome. They are just tremendous performers, way past what I thought they could achieve. It’s amazing what they’ve done this year.”
