California State Fife and Drum Band

Adopted in 1997

The California Consolidated Drum Band was designated as the official State Fife and Drum Corps in 1997. The music of fife and drum roused and inspired soldiers during significant events in this country's history.

On January 14, 1997, State Assemblyman Bernie Richter introduced Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 5 (ACR 5) in the California General Assembly.

California Consolidated Drum Band

On November 16, 1996, the California Consolidated Drum Band became the first California corps to be approved for membership in the Company of Fifers & Drummers at that organization's company museum and headquarters in Ivoryton, Connecticut, in recognition of its excellence and authenticity in performance on traditional wooden fifes and rope-tensioned drums. The Company of Fifers & Drummers was formed in 1965 "to perpetuate the historical significance and folk traditions of fife and drum music and to foster the spirit of fellowship among fifers and drummers everywhere."
