The 2019 Phantom Regiment Drum Corps is proud to take the field in Michael J. Cesario designed uniforms from Fred J Miller, Inc.
“Michael Cesario and the Fred J. Miller team have gone above and beyond to tell the ‘I Am Joan’ story through fabric and design,” said Program Coordinator, Will Pitts. “We can’t wait to see Phantom Regiment take the field!”

To the Macomb Area Community and Western Illinois University,
For the second year in a row, the welcome and hospitality that you provide our traveling circus have been overwhelming. From the phenomenal stadium, facilities, and campus of Western Illinois to the restaurants that stayed open late for our staff. Rather than complain about the noise, our neighbors often shared their excitement to be listening to us rehearse outside of their offices and homes. We know we come with a lot of (literal) baggage, but your community is wonderfully nice and receptive to us.
Our hornline was thrilled to join the Macomb Municipal Band in a performance of Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral, conducted by WIU director of bands, Mike Fansler. Check out photos from the event below.
Friday will be our last rehearsals at WIU. We will be rehearsing 10:30a-1:30p; 2:30p-5:30p and 6:30p-8:00p. Feel free to come watch any of our last rehearsals before the performance starting at 8:00 pm.
Phantom Regiment is excited to announce a new partnership with Ultimate Drill Book (UDB) for the 2019-2020 season.
UDB technology works in direct conjunction with our drill writing technology and is delivered instantly to our members’ phones using the UDB App. UDB also provides customized dot books printed with individual dots and notes for each member.
UDB is the best tool out there for learning and teaching drill. It provides the performers with all the information they need to execute at a high level. And it helps our staff to study, plan, and deliver instruction as we stage and clean the show. – Andrew Desmond, Visual Caption Head
Our designers, instructors, and members are already utilizing this technology while learning, refining, and practicing their 2019 production, “I Am Joan.” Check out the video below for testimonials from the field!

UDB is awarding over $4000 to help students march drum corps in 2020. The competition culminates in a live competition on the field during semi-finals.
