Romford Drum & Trumpet CD
Trident Marketing are delighted to announce that they have proudly sponsored the Romford Drum & Trumpet 60th Anniversary CD. The band holds a very special place in Trident Marketing's heart as it is the organisation in which both Richard and Yvette Pearce met some 45 years ago.
The CD is called Sparkling Diamonds and sets a theme of music used in stage & screen. Some of the tracks are the main movie or stage themes, other pieces simply are featured within the film or musical. The CD was professionally recorded at the band's hall in Harold Hill, Essex. Yvette and Victoria were fortunate enough to be present at the recording and it sounded fantastic!
Formed in 1957 by the late Richard Bouchard MBE, The Romford Drum & Trumpet Corps is a youth military style band, based in the London Borough of Havering. As one of the oldest independent youth marching bands in the country, it has a proud history, with performances throughout the UK. In recent years, the band has travelled further and performed in France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Gibraltar and the USA. Its uniforms, instrumentation and style is closely based upon that of the Armed Forces Military Bands.
The band has performed at prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Wembley Stadium, St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and The London Palladium. It has also had the honour of performing in the presence of every member of the Royal Family including a performance at Buckingham Palace for HM the Queen. As a registered charity, the band has for sixty years provided the young people of Romford with a rewarding activity. On the competition field the Romford Drum & Trumpet Corps has an impressive record of success. It has won the National Championships on seven occasions, including a hattrick from 1987-89.
Despite the band receiving no funding, as an organisation, it manages to give a good foundation to youngsters and has continued the ethos of its founder where membership to the band is free of charge.
This CD is a musical snap shot of the current band members, who continually are challenged with new music and strive for excellence.
Trident are extremely proud that we were able to mark the 60 year milestone of the band by supporting the production of the CD. As well as funding the recording, Trident designed and printed the full CD booklet including CD printing and track listing insert.
