The Band of The Royal Logistic Corps was formed in 1993 following the amalgamation of the Bands of The Royal Corps of Transport and The Royal Army Ordnance Corps. Currently based at The Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut, the Band comprises Thirty-two Musicians from the Corps of Army Music. The Band delivers music across the United Kingdom for the Royal Logistic Corps, British Army and wider Defence Engagement.
The Band of the Royal Logistic Corps is able to produce no fewer than 12 working ensembles including a traditional marching band, show band, big band, fanfare team, brass quintets, saxophone quartet, acoustic and rock groups and a variety of other small ensembles, able to deliver any music to suit any occasion, anywhere in the world.
Recent engagements include performances at the Royal Albert Hall London, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, Regional theatres across the UK as well as Ceremonial Musical support for troops and public performances UK and overseas. The Band was invited to perform for the 50TH anniversary tattoo of the Bermuda regiment, Bermuda and also at Musikparade, Germany. Members of the band have taken part in assisting with the training and musical development to musicians in Botswana and Malawi, Lebanon and Ethiopia. The Band continue to deliver music both in the military and civilian environment working with educational establishments and within the wider civilian community.
The Corps of Drums of The Royal Logistic Corps
The Corps of Drums has a proud history dating back to 1799 when one Drummer from each of the five companies of the newly formed Royal Wagon Train was authorized to replace trumpeters.
Buglers and Drummers undertake a Two Year tour with the Corps of Drums before returning to their trades ranging from Drivers to Radio Operators.
The Corps of Drums are in high demand for their Black Light drum routines and when not working alongside the Band, undertake performances as a single unit. These displays have taken the Corps of Drums across the Globe, from displays in Northern Ireland and Germany, to performing alongside the band at the Bermuda Tattoo. The Corps of Drums most recent tour took them to the United States of America and performances at the Conneticut Drummers Convention, West Point Military Academy and Time Square in New York.
