Revolution Drum and Bugles Corps, founded in 1999, is a junior marching and maneuvering drum corps based in San Antonio, Texas. The corps' purpose is to serve the musical youth in San Antonio and surrounding areas with a summer activity filled with positive reinforcement, musical instruction, and leadership building skills. John Rodriguez, a native San Antonian, founded this non-profit organization.

In their inaugural competitive season, Revolution traveled throughout the Southwest to many regional competitions, finishing the year ninth in Division III competition at the DCI World Championships.

The corps was sponsored by Vic Firth, Sticktape.Com, Jiwi Drums, and Sterling Stitches. An alliance with the San Antonio Stampede professional football team has also paid benefits in the form of performance opportunities and financial support.

Revolution's 2002 show, 'Celestial Mysticisms,' took them to the top of Division III at DCI Madison, earning them a trip back for a proud exhibition performance on Saturday night. The corps' victory was the first world championship ever won by a drum corps from Texas.

In 2003, the corps finished seventh in combined Division II/III Finals. After the season, new uniforms appeared, designed to stress the corps' ties to the Lone Star State.

Revolution did not compete in 2004. The corps was reorganized in 2005 with a new educational staff, new uniforms designed specifically for the drum corps and the goal to make a successful return to DCI. Due to an increase in Division III maximum size limits to 79, Revolution fielded one of the largest drum corps (78) in its short history.

Despite being inactive the previous year, the drum corps membership (90% rookies) came from Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Michigan, Ohio and all over the state of Texas. The 2005 production was titled Expressions of Emotion which illustrated a wide range of moods and feelings through five movements; Contemplation, Trepidation, Confrontation, Resolution, and Hope. This banner year was topped with a 4th place finish as a Division III Finalist
