Recent Band Events
Wednesday 1 st June was the start of the Blockhouse Summer Concerts. They are held the first Wednesday of June, August and September at 7:00 pm. The July concert is the second Wednesday of the month at 7:00 pm.
There was a special unveiling of a plaque before the concert. Through the efforts of band member Brian Porter a plaque was created to represent the history of the band in Brockville since 1931. The family of the first Pipe Major Tom Marshall was there to help with the unveiling.
The Band wears the Royal Stewart tartan
which you see here in the heading background.
The pleating of the kilt is rather unusual
in that it is pleated to the blue stripe.
This is so unusual that we sometimes are asked:
“Why do you have two different tartans on your kilt?”
