This includes adding a new song, “Copacabana” to the repertoire which includes “Hang ‘Em High/Mag 7,” “New York, New York,” “America,”“Gonna Fly Now,” “Sunrise Lady” and “Elk’s Parade.” The corps is always looking for new members. If you’re a current horn player or drummer you can bring your playing to the next level by playing in the drum corps. The corps is free to participate in. Jack Kujawa, corps advisor, stated, “This corps is so much fun to be around and the talent is incredible. This is the perfect time to join because you have a lot of time to learn the music.” Dave Fridmann will again serve as corps director. Dave also works with the drum line and is the drum sergeant. The horn instructor/arranger position is again in the capable hands of Jonathon Fridmann and Mateo Mendez. Friends and family members are welcome to all corps functions.

MAY 1, 2019
The WNY Alumni Drum and Bugle Corps has been preparing for the 2019 season with regular rehearsals at the Elks lodge on Central Avenue since January this year.
Continuing the long tradition of Drum Corps in the area, The WNY Alumni Drum and Bugle Corps is a corps that has members of all ages and experience who are interested in having fun, marching in parades, and making music.
Dave Fridmann, Corps Director, offered his overview of this year’s corps, “We’ve been growing little by little for over the past few years. This year’s corps has really solidified as a unit. Our retention has created a consistency in our performance that has not been possible in the past.” he stated. “Our sound and musicality are on a new level that we have never been able to achieve before.”
The group is seeking new members to be part of the alumni family. The next practice is May 7, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Elks Lodge, 428 Central Ave., Dunkirk, and the first parade is Memorial Day in Dunkirk. If interested, contact the corps at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have fun this summer. Join today!
