Black Knights Announce 2008 Show

'Young Musicians Guide to Rock' is the name of the 2008 production that Black Knights Senior Corps are proud to announce. A show that will be 'in ya face' from the very start incorporating some of the very best rock music there is. The show will be another original exciting BK production.

The Black Knights are very glad to be putting 'everyday' music on the drum corps field. The theme promises to have your head banging to the drumbeats and face-melting guitar riffs from music that has stood the test of time for decades up until the most recent releases.

2008 looks to be a very exciting year for the corps with old and new faces returning to work alongside recently appointed corps director Ken Mansfield. Emma Weir continues her role as Senior Corps Co-ordinator. Simon Hasting has taken the role of Musical Director/Arranger and is very excited to be finally putting rock music onto the drum corps field.

Vicky Richards (Pit Caption Head) and Rus Rogers are Co-writing the tuned percussion scores and Dave Haw will be writing the visual programme with David 'Fletch' Fletcher staying on as Visual Caption Head. Steven Blakeley has taken the role of Brass Caption Head, and 2008 also sees the return of former Corps Director, Steven Muzio, to help with brass and help to move the corps forwards.

Black Knights schedule until Easter has been released and the reduced schedule has already seen Alumni return to 'Rock the house' and an increase in of membership in all sections, including the recent promotion of three cadet members. There are still spots in all sections available, so if you are interested and are not currently attached to another organisation, please contact the Black Knights for more details.
