Marching bands have evolved from Military bands in the late nineteenth century. Marching bands have became increasingly popular features of American life in part through the musical work and leadership of John Philip Sousa, who headed the U.S. Marine Band from 1880 until 1892.
There are six different types of marching bands. There are Military, Parade, Show, HBCU, Drum and Bugle Corps, and Bugle bands.
Military bands are historically the first of the various marching bands. Military marching bands march forward only usually in straight lines and a constant tempo in order to keep a steady beat for other military units
Parade bands generally only play in parades. Many military and veterans' organizations maintain parade bands.
Show bands typically march in time to the music, and may also participate in parades and competitions. Show bands make illusions during their halftime show as the music is being played
HBCU bands (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), are another variation on traditional high-stepping bands. HBCU bands started as athletic support for football teams and have grown to be featured in movies, various professional sporting contests, and political events.
Drum and Bugle Corps are marching ensembles descended from military signaling units that is distinctly divided into classic and modern corps.
Bugle bands are a subset of military bands that use non-valved instruments, typically B-flat bugles.

Blue Stars was the silver medalist at the 1972 Drum Corps International World Championship, finishing just over a half a point away from winning the inaugural event. Competing as an Open Class unit for much of the late 1980s into the early 2000s, the corps won the World Championship title in its class in 1989, 1993, 2001 and 2003. The corps began competing in the World Class ranks again in 2006.
