In 1983 Kent Lindén started a percussion band (based on the American model) with students playing percussion instruments at the Municipal School of Music in Gislaved. The band today consists of around 40 percussionists aged between 12 and 25.The Drum Major leads the band followed by 12 Drum Majorettes, participating in Everything from marches and concerts and carnivals. During the years Drum Corps have developed into an accomplished band performing everything from samba, rock, jazz and popto classical music. Continued success has meant that interest for the band has rapidly increased occasionally evenleading the declining of offers to play due to a full calendar. During the season the band willgive a number of performances. The highlight of the year for the members is a trip abroad oftenpartaking in an international festival. Apart from hard work, hard training and great enthusiasm, development of the group could not continue without the fantastic support from parents andsponsors. The members of the board and the members of the band would like to thank allsponsors, the Municipal School of Music and all those who make future ventures possible. Wewould like also to thank the Municipally of Gislaved and their leaders who show in words as wellas in action that Gislaved is the town that sets the tone. We look forward to many ”striking” years to come.
