Americans coming to Tattoo

The Americans are coming.

The 133rd Army National Guard Band from Camp Murray, Wash. will be adding an international flavour to the fifth annual Okanagan Military Tattoo.

Held at Kal Tire Place July 28-29, the Tattoo features numerous marching bands and attracts thousands of people.

Members of the American band range in age from their late teens to mid 50s and represent a wide cross section of the community.

With music educators and professional musicians, students and other career professionals, the 133 Army Band is diverse in its professional composition.

Typically, the band meets once a month and performs a two-week concert tour around Washington State during the summer.

Additional performances include community concerts, sporting events, Army National Guard ceremonies and state functions.

"We are honoured that the 133rd Army National Guard Band is taking time out of their busy schedule to perform here in Vernon. The Army National Guard also have an excellent working relationship with the Canadian Armed Forces Reserve Regiments in BC including the Okanagan's own local regiment, the British Columbia Dragoons who will also be taking part in the Tattoo,” said Norm Crerar, president of the Okanagan Military Tattoo Society.

Other performing groups for the 2018 Tattoo include the band of the 15th Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, Highland and ethnic dancers, massed pipes and drums, cadets from the Vernon Cadet Training Centre and a special Tribute to the Veterans featuring the band of the Salvation Army from Vancouver.
