Monaco…

Neither music nor words can speak loud enough to describe our journey to Monaco. From meeting with Prince Albert, participation in Monaco IPA events, marching through the streets of Monte Carlo, playing in the Cathedral of Monaco for Princess Grace Kelly — to marching and performing before the royal family at their palace; the stories, sounds and photos only give you a glimpse as to what the band and our families experienced.

Special thanks to our Pipe Major Danny McGuire for his diligence towards our success and leading the band through a series of firsts; including the first band to ever march and perform with Fanfare de la Compagnie des Carabiniers du Prince de Monaco on their National Day!!!

During the visit our friend Daniel Rodríguez was presented with a special commendation for his positive contributions to humanity, including a small silver plate presented by officials of the International Police Association as a show of appreciation for being part of their week of festivities in Monaco.
