The Seattle Hurricanes, formed before 1937, was a senior marching and maneuvering and parade corps based in Seattle, Washington. They were sponsored by the American Legion University Post 11.

The corps’ colors were black and white.

Awards included American Legion State Champions for the years 1937-38, 1951-53, and 1959-64.

The 1964 Program states the Corps officers are:
Manager, Warren Bagby - Music Director, John Broderick.

In 1963 they were State of Washington VFW Senior Champions and also State of Washington American Legion Seniors Champions.

The Hurricanes were organized in 1927 and have been State Senior Champions eight times, including four of the last five years. They have participated in hundreds of ceremonies, parades and competitions around the State and find many friends wherever they go.

The Hurricanes are probably the most devoted and active of the senior corps and its members have aided in the formation of Junior Drum & Bugle Corps. This Corps could well be called the "daddy" of the Seattle Junior Corps.
