We are starting to get invites to a couple of parades and performances for 2024. As we finalize the contracts we will be posting them here and on our facebook page.
Our only confirmed dates at the moment is the GAS (the Great Alliance of Seniors Alumni Reunion) on the weekend of May 3rd - 5th in Williamsport PA. WE are including a corps trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown on May 2nd. 
We are also booked for a special celebration of General Lafayette's American Thank you Celebration in October along with Bristol Day, also in October.

Look for us in a parade or performance near you  

Bracken has openings in all sections. Must be 18 and older. We play on G Bugles and since our age and body pains prohibit us to march, we do parades on a float. WE have about 8 parades, several festivals and a tour of servicemen retirement homes on our schedule. Once a year we take a trip somewhere out of our local area to have some fun sightseeing and performing at retirement homes for our service men and women.  Last year we spent 4 days in Washington DC and had the opportunity to go to the Marine Barracks to see their nighttime retreat. This year we are traveling to Cooperstown NY then to the Annual GAS Reunion to perform and have some fun. 

Email if interested.

Saturday, May 9 2022, was sad day for alumni corps in the Philadelphia area. The SJ Vagabonds has decided to fold their organization. They provided some great performances throughout the last 10 years and they will be missed.
They have decided to donate all their equipment to Bracken. We thank you for your generosity. It is deeply appreciated.


Bracken is still looking to bring back their colorguard.

Our colorguard has been missing for far too long. So, calling all Bracken Guard Alumni and anyone else who would like to join Brackens Colorguard, we would like to hear from you. If you know any band directors who may like to have their colorguard stay active, please talk to them. I would love to have a guard in front of the corps. If you know anyone who would like to come out, whether from a High School band, drum corps or I never did but would like to, please email me at or go to our website,, and go to our contact page to join.

Thank You,
Phil Bigelow
