Congratulations to Tenor Drummer & Captain Scott Sefton on his retirement from the District of Columbia Fire Department after over 30 years of service. Captain Sefton was appointed to 7 engine, later transferred to 18 engine, where he was became pumper-man before transferring to Rescue Squad 1, where he became a Squad Driver. He retires as one of the most respected Captains on the job,
and his leadership will be missed.
Congrats again Scotty and enjoy platoon #5!
The Band made it's way down a chilly Constitution Avenue for the
15th straight year during the 2017 D.C. St. Patrick's Day Parade.
This was our first trip down the Avenue without piper and charter member
Tommy Keelan. A spot in the front row was reserved for Tommy.
After the parade we made our way to DAR Constitution Hall for the 38th Annual Emerald Society St. Patrick's Day Party. During our performance we played a new song, "Fields of Athenry", in honor of Tommy.
Then its was time to have a few pints with family & friends and enjoy the party.
Congratulations to our newest piper Scott Bell on his first parade with the Band!
A special thanks to the Emerald Society for their generous $1500 donation celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Band.
Once again the Band had the honor of marching in the flag during the opening ceremony of the IAFF Alfred K. Whitehead Legislative Conference.
Later in the evening we performed during IAFF Local 36's Hospitality Night at
Old Engine 12 Restaurant, a recently renovated DC firehouse.
Parade season kicked off when the Band returned to Annapolis for their
5th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade.
Once again we had a great time and enjoyed some pints poured by
