A Marine Corps Band of ‘Brothers’

The U.S. Marine Band parades will continue until the end of August.

That brotherhood and the experience performing worldwide with other elite bands and orchestras is what makes the Drum and Bugle Corps so special for Williams, he said. The band recently returned from performing with the New York Philharmonic and also played at the Drum Corps International Finals. The parades will continue until the end of August.

Regardless of where its playing or for whom its playing, Williams said, every performance, for him, is the same.

Its a rush for me, like a legal drug. I get anxious. I get butterflies in my stomach, he said. Its an unbelievable amount of excitement.
