Since our formation in 2006 — the Wake and District Public Safety Drums have been honored to bring our tradition – to graduations and promotional ceremonies for public safety agencies in the State of North Carolina.  Over the past two days, members of our band were privileged to play for some of the bravest and finest…

On Thursday, 25 September we honored the Raleigh Fire Department Recruit Academy 39 at their Graduation at the Duke Energy Center.  Photos from the ceremony by Lee Wilson can be seen here.

On Friday, 26 September we marched in the cadets of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol 135th class — and marched them out as Troopers.

On behalf of the members of our band – we wish North Carolina’s newest troopers — and the City of Raleigh’s newest fire fighters — all the best in the days, weeks, months and years ahead of them.

Enjoy the friendships gained through the years ahead of selfless sacrifice and devotion to your wonderful professions.
