Originally formed as the 27 Alumni in 1996, the Light Brigade has grown to include alumni from many distinguished drum corps and bands throughout the East Coast. Featuring a quality, balanced sound and one of the most active guards among alumni corps, the Light Brigade is widely recognized as one of New England's premier exhibition drum corps.
The Light Brigade strives to create an environment where the members can enhance their skills and realize their full potential. Quality and professionalism are stressed in every area so that our performance is at the highest possible level.
We are an adult organization that tries to balance the time and financial commitment required to produce a quality performance with the many other responsibilities and interests of our members. Weekly rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 TO 10:00 PM at the American Legion Post #69, Pleasant Street, Malden, MA (Route 60). Several major exhibitions are performed each year.
As an alumni drum corps our usual minimum age for membership is 21 years old. However, consideration is given to younger persons who, for various reasons may not be able to find an outlet for their talents in youth organizations.
New members are always welcome. If you are interested in membership please , or stop by a rehearsal.
