Royalaires Strike Up the Bands for War Museum

Royalaires Strike Up the Bands for War Museum

The Waterloo Band Festival was revived one year ago, largely through the efforts of the Guelph Royalaires Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps and its president, William Granger. This new version of the old festival, which draws bands from various parts of Ontario and from New York State, takes place again at 7 p.m. Aug. 19 at the stadium on Seagram Drive at Wilfrid Laurier University.

New Waterloo Band Festival hopes to recapture a moment in time

New Waterloo Band Festival hopes to recapture a moment in time

Mark you calendars. The new Waterloo Band Festival is back.

University Stadium, in the heart of Waterloo, will host the event Aug. 19.--fitting since the stadium, formerly named Seagram Stadium, was part of the original site of the historic Waterloo Band Festival. The internationally famous festival drew bands from across North America and lasted for a few days.

The second annual event, sponsored by the Guelph Royalaires Alumni Drum and Bugle Corps, will carry on its goal of raising money for Canada's war heroes at the Juno Beach Memorial in Normandy, France.

Drum Corps Wiki needs you

As I am still involved with it, here is my periodic post about Drum Corps Wiki.

To those unfamiliar with it, the DrumCorpsWiki is an on-line encyclopedia of drum corps all over the world, past and present. Have a look and contribute what you know about corps you have marched in, seen, supported. It doesn't cost anything and it's fun. You may have already noticed it coming up in web searches for your favourite corps.

I have been entering things about Canadian drum corps whenever I have a minute. Help me out!
