Have United Alumni Drum and
Bugle Corps perform at your event
United Alumni Drum and Bugle Corps is always looking for new events to
participate in. Currently we attend 15 to 18 events each year. These
events range from festival parades such as the
Pumpkin Festival Parade or Simcoe's own
Friendship Festival parade. We travel
across Ontario into Quebec, Michigan and New York. We also
both outside and inside audiences such as
our own "and the bands played on" the
Norfolk County Fair and Richmond, Michigan's Good Old Days Festival.
Our prime objective is to entertain our audiences and have fun!

The United Alumni Drum and Bugle Corps was formed in 1998 as a one time
reunion event. That one time event has continued into their thirteen season of
operation. Their marching member’s history spans more than five decades from
1950 to 2000. Today their members’ average age is 55 years young and come from
across Ontario to perform before audiences in parades and shows in the United
States, Quebec and of course Ontario. United Alumni is very proud to have won
many awards throughout the years including Best Marching Unit in the Montreal
St. Patrick’s Day Parade in 2008 and best Musical Unit out of 20 marching bands
at the 2010 West Virginia Strawberry Festival, in Buckhannon West Virginia.
