BD Performing Arts
A non-profit 501(c)3
youth organization

BD Performing Arts (then known as Blue Devils Parents Association) began in 1957 when Ann and Tony Odello and the Concord branch of the V.F.W. acquired The Martinettes (an 50-member all-boy drum corps and all-girl drill team) and founded the Blue Devils – named "Blue" for the V.F.W. color and "Devils" after Concord's local landmark, Mt. Diablo.

BDPA has since expanded to include the World Champion Blue Devils A Corps, World Champion B Corps, C Corps, World Champion Winter Guard, Special Needs Guard, World Champion RCC Indoor Percussion, BD Entertainment, and Diablo Wind Symphony.

Since 1975, the A Corps have never finished out of the top five and have won the DCI World Championship Title an unprecedented 17 times. They have been featured in concert with legends such as Maynard Ferguson, Bobby Shew, Chuck Mangione, Stan Kenton, and Buddy Rich.

Since its inception in 2001, RCC Indoor Percussion has never placed out of the top four, winning the WGI World Championship title five times.

As part of the One Music One World initiative, these groups have educated and performed in dozens of countries around the world, from the United States to Japan to Holland to Guatemala to Malaysia and many more countries.

BD Performing Arts uses its talented staff and resources to produce System Blue products, events, and publications. System Blue is the System of Excellence for band directors, teachers, staff, designers, performers, and marching members.

In addition to international education and performances, BDPA's program BD Entertainment has provided entertainment for clients such as PeopleSoft, Allstate, RJ Reynolds, SBC Long Distance, Bank of the West, Life Scan, Johnson & Johnson, Wells Fargo, Sterling Jewelers, and the NBA (with the Phoenix Suns, New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks, LA Clippers, Sacramento Kings, and Golden State Warriors). BD Entertainment has also been featured on the soundtrack to Pixar's Monsters University, Nike television commercials, Ellen (the talk show), the NBA All-Star Game, and the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon.

In 2005, to better reflect the focus of the organization, Blue Devils Parents Association changed their name to BD Performing Arts.
