The Limited Edition Drum Corps come from a disadvantage community Manenberg.

In 2010 one of the group members came across another audition. The audition for the Fifa World Cup Fan Fest and Fan Walks entertainment. This was the biggest step and performance that the group could ever participated in and the guys could not believed when the judges put them through to the final round of auditions which was held at Grand West Casino at the Grand Arena. Again the judges were impress and were selected out of 3000 participants.
