This summer, the Blue Knights have been lucky to get thousands of hours’ worth of amazing volunteer help, but for the last week we’ve had someone a little bit unusual on board with us. Eric Skinner has been volunteering on the cook truck since the end of July, and also happens to be the band director at Gallia Academy High School.

If you’ve seen the Blue Knights this year, chances are you’ve seen Alberto Viñado, a Blue Knights marimba player from Dallas, TX. The Blue Knights front ensemble is regularly commended for the passionate performers in the front ensemble, and Alberto is no exception–learn more about him!
Join us on Friday, June 12th, to get a first look at the 2015 program, “Because…” and wish the Blue Knights luck as they leave to start their competitive tour. The show is at 8pm, at Adams City High School, and it is free to the public. You’re not going to want to miss this!
It was an incredibly busy and exciting weekend for Ascend Performing Arts. Not only did the Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps move in for all-day rehearsals, the Ascend team was able to attend the 10th annual Kaiser Permanente Colfax Marathon as a Charity Partner.
The Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble, the Broncos Stampede Drum Line and Broncos Brass will be performing on Sunday morning for the runners along the race route for the Colfax Marathon, Marathon Relay and 10-Miler races.
Are you planning on attending the 10th annual Colfax Marathon weekend on May 16th and 17th? Consider volunteering for Ascend Performing Arts and support the Blue Knights!
