PR: Celebrating the Tradition of American Marching Bands



Celebrating the Tradition of American Marching Bands

From football games to graduation ceremonies, the marching bands are the essential part of the American school events. Bringing a varied programme that includes everything from traditional Sousa marches and film themes to rock classics and contemporary pop, they enliven these traditional happenings across the US.

On this album, The Blues And Royals provide their unique take on a variety of musical genres from Cream and Led Zeppelin through to the music of today including Christina Aguilera and James Blunt, all neatly topped off by a selection of traditional marches and their salute to Disney’s High School Musical.

The history of The Blues And Royals reaches back close to 350 years with the band still using solid silver kettledrums presented by King George III in 1805. Today they are Britain’s worldwide cultural ambassadors and they play concerts across the globe. Their multi-state, coast to coast tours of the United States are warmly received and this release is a salute to the generosity and kindness shown by their American host.
