Memorial Cup!

Kamloops, BC – May 26 and June 4, 2023

The Kamloops Rube Band had the honour of entertaining the crowds waiting in line to see the opening and closing games of the Memorial Cup Hockey Tournament at the Sandman Centre in downtown Kamloops. Except for our drummers, we left our sticks at home, though there may have been the odd elbow from the clarinet section. The brass was well-behaved as usual. I fully expect some suitably entertaining photographs or videos of the event to show up here soon. Meeting up with people who hadn’t heard us in a few years was fun. There is nothing like playing for an appreciative crowd. We may even have drummed up so future gigs (all puns intended). A big thank you to the Memorial Cup organizers for including us in the festivities!
