“We have a great interest in what DCI is trying to accomplish. And we realize that when we help them, we’re helping thousands of young performers and musicians,” said Jason Egan, CFDynamics Chief Operations Officer. “Our relationship works- because if we care about our customer, then they will care about us.”
Drum Corps International governs over 40 junior drum and bugle corps in the USA and Canada, made up of members ages 21 and younger. With over 5000 youth participating each year, DCI strives to “provide a life changing experience for youth through the art of marching music performance.” DCI currently has corps from all around the world, competing in performances across the country during the summer season.
DCI is on the cusp of opening their 2012 competition schedule- with over 100 performances across the United States, from June through August. This year will also mark DCI’s 40th anniversary. They will celebrate the milestone with a Grand Reunion event, August 9-11 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
DCI not only facilitates and governs the corps competitions, but they also sell audio and video merchandise for the junior drum and bugle corps, as a means of marketing and financial support for their young performing groups. They sell and promote this merchandise via The Fan Network, a site that CFDynamics helped them create.
DCI signed with CFDynamics in 2004. They were seeking expert support and guidance to create and support The Fan Network. And, they needed a web host who could offer extreme, unique support for the changing needs of their site. In partnering with CFDynamics, DCI has tripled hardware, heightened security and lowered hosting costs. As a result, traffic to both DCI sites has more than quadrupled.
“CFDynamics has truly been a business partner, and that has made all the difference for us.” said Mat Chavez, DCI’s Senior Technology Manager.
