On January 21st a major blow was struck to a non-profit youth group when robbers stole roughly $25,000 worth of equipment. The robbers rented a storage unit at A-American self storage in Santa Fe Springs, California. On January 21st they entered their unit and closed the door concealing their work. Using hammers, they broke through the walls of their rented unit to raid 6 adjoining units in order to steal the contents. Upon entering Impulse Drum and Bugle Corps storage unit, they found 2 thump subwoofers, 2 Mackie SP1530s, 1 Yamaha 32 channel mixer, 3 Adams timpani, a djembe, a Remo bass drum and a haul of miscellaneous percussion hardware. They returned later in the evening, cutting the lock on Impulse’s storage unit in order to load the large equipment into their vehicles and fled the scene. Police are currently investigating the robbery.

Since 1999 Impulse Drum and Bugle corps has provided a safe, fun, youth centered summer marching experience to students ranging from ages 14 to 21. They are a 501c3 non-profit and most of their staff and support are volunteers. They have traveled the nation competing in Drum Corps International, obtaining many awards and a national championship in 2006. Impulse has served thousands of talented young musicians in its 20 years of existence.

Impulse Drum & Bugle Corps is a relatively small musical group every piece of equipment plays an important role. Aaron Zeilinger is an Alumni of the organization and currently serves as the Director. He has this to say about the incident, “The current Impulse family will be hit hard by this loss. The equipment that was stolen we were working on selling to support our members and repair some needed items in the corps. As with all trials, I know the Impulse family will come together and we will make sure our 2019 members will still have an educational, exciting and zany experience this summer.”

Impulse Drum and Bugle Corps will do the best it can to raise the funds for the missing equipment but they need a little assistance.
