    What can anyone tell me about this old group Future Corps

    I've never heard of them until tonight when a friend of mine introduced me to them and they are absolutely amazing. Apparently they used to play at Epcot for years and I never saw them. I really wish I had because this is fabulous.

    Re: What can anyone tell me about this old group Future Corps

    Oh yes.. the good olde Future Corps Band. It was EPCOT Center's answer to the MK's Marching Band of sorts. These guys used to play marching band style music with attitude and hipness, until some stupid manager decided they were no longer an expense they could afford and were dropped off EPCOT's live entertainment lineup. They did play for several years in and around CommuniCore and InnoVentions. In fact, every time they played music in the corridors of CommuniCore/Innoventions, they music blasted off the building and came off very very very loud! I used to cover my ears everytime I had to walk pass one of their performances. They were fun to watch though.

    In fact, some of the Future Corps band members later became Jammitors around WDW and as far away as TDR! I happen to know one of them personally, but he does prefer to remain anonymous.

    I remember the future world corps. Not that well since I was so young, but I do remember them. They did make an impression on you. Not only did that link remind me of how great they were, but you can see Horizons in the background!

    I can't figure out which one is more outdated, CommuniCore or "Groove is in the Heart" that they're playing in front of it.

    I certainly know that the extinction of CommuniCore is the greater tragedy.

    That's really TOO BAD. ugh. Groups like this really make my visit more enjoyable. Disneyland also had a drum & bugle corp group like this called The Magic Kingdom Corp but they were dropped for the same reason.
