The LGB&D took its most recent (seventh tour) to Germany during June & July of 2008.  We made some new friends in Kiedrich and Gladbach and renewed old friendships in Gleich am Berg, Germany. People from Kiedrich and Gladbach will be visiting us in July 2009. Here's some links for pictures from the 2008 trip. Germany 2008

Steve Sykes is a world-reknowned tubist and was the featured soloist for the LGB 2000 Spring Concert.

The Raleigh Ringers is one of the nation's premier handbell choirs, and put on a special concert for our friends from Gleich am Berg, Germany when the visited in May 2003.  Their director is married to a member of our dance group.

Jim Walker, one of our long time members who plays trumpet, has moved to Florida and is working with and performing with these groups. Jim is a trumpeter and conductor.
He is the Kapelmeister (conductor) of  the  Hafenkapelle.
He and his wife Ann (a former clarinetist with the LGB&D) are active in the club  GASC Cape Coral.
(GASC is the German American Social Club - - it isn't a band).
GASC puts on the Oktoberfest and the Gartenfests.  Click on "Facilities & Grounds" to see the ballroom and Bavarian Garden.

Jim is also active in two other musical groups  Lee County Band  and  The Vintage Brass

The LGB&D has also visited and had exchange visits with several European musical groups in our travels since 1971. They have been very rewarding trips and visits.
