The Black Watch was established in 1966 as a Drum and Bugle Corps.
Today this legendary performance group stands tall as one of the oldest and most well respected marching arts organizations still in existence.
2014 marks BW's 48th consecutive year of performance.
Black Watch 2014 Show Announcement
Black Watch proudly celebrates 48 years of excellence with their 2014 production entitled Aquam Rubro – translation – Water Scape. This year’s elegant program is set to the music of Eric Whitacre’s beautifully composed “Water Night” as performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. An artistic imagining of the beauty and mystery of the deep blue ocean sets the stage for our 2014 show. Soundtrack design is by Joe Costable.
The Black Watch hails from Mount Laurel, New Jersey. They are proud to boast many talented and dedicated individuals on their design and instructional staff including several Black Watch alum. The unit is led onto the floor by captains Kristy Beohmer and Shannon Hall. This year’s team features twenty-four gifted performers coming from all over the Mid-Atlantic region and even as far away as Japan.
They are a twelve time WGI Independent World Class finalist. They have also been the Tournament Indoor Association’s (TIA) Independent World Class All-Chapter Champions for the last consecutive 17 years.
Black Watch will compete at the WGI Regionals in South Brunswick New Jersey and West Long Branch New Jersey. They will compete at the WGI World Championships at the University of Dayton in April and TIA’s All-Chapter Championships in Wildwood this May.
The Black Watch Organization wishes to extend a special thank you to their fans and alumni for their continued support. A special thank you to the Jersey Surf Drum Corps, costume design sponsor Joseph Heininger and A Wish Come True and artwork designer Katie Gallagher.

Black Watch's home-show competition was a huge success. We were proud to honor our long-time designer Joe Heininger for his 19 seasons with the BW. Below is a collage that was put together to honor his many beautiful shows and memories!
