On Saturday, 10 October 2015 – members of Wake and District helped usher in the NHL Carolina Hurricanes #Redvolution with the skirl of the pipes and war beat of the drums. The band was #OnIce for the performance. Solo piper Seth Wells and solo drummer Jacob Egen were center ice playing a rendition of Dawning of the Day – and the band joined in playing Scotland the Brave and Rowan Tree as the team coaches were announced.
Our Drum Major, Jason Lane, marched the team from their lockeroom – to the tunnel where they were announced.
Our sincere thanks to Jon Chase from the Carolina Hurricanes for bumping into the band 3 years ago at Woody’s pub in Raleigh – and for thinking of including Raleigh’s pipe band at a Carolina Hurricanes event. We had a fantastic time – THANK YOU!
For the record — no one fell.
Check out some band photos and videos below.
