FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is The Logan Guards?

The Logan Guards Drum & Bugle Corps is based out of Lewistown, PA. We play for the love of the marching arts. Our music is in the style of drum & bugle corps, meaning we consist of only brass and percussion instruments.

How long have you been around?

Not long! Our first summer of playing was in 2021, and we were drums-only. The summer of 2022 will see the addition of brass instruments.

 

Where do you perform?

We have played and will continue to play a variety of local community events. We occasionally participate with the SDCA (Small Drum Corps Associates).

 

Is there an age limit?

Yes, you must be 18 or over. If you are under 18, you may participate in the organization if your parent is in the organization as well.

 

 

What are the financial requirements?

Each playing member must buy a t-shirt ($15). Dues are $50 a year.

 

What do you do with the money?

There are bills associated with this organization. We are fully insured, and that is not free. There are costs associated with t-shirt production. We are also saving money to purchase instruments.

 

Do I have to wear my shirt to every rehearsal?

Yes. We take a lot of pictures throughout the season, at rehearsals and at performances. These pictures are then used to help build our brand, like on this website.

 

What is the uniform for performances?

The t-shirt is our uniform.

 

Do I need my own instrument?

The Logan Guards owns its own percussion equipment, but we do not own any horns. We are a BYOH (Bring Your Own Horn) organization.

 

 

When do you rehearse?

We rehearse on most Saturday mornings throughout the late spring and summer. Take a look at the schedule on the website.

 

 

What is the season?

We begin in late spring and end in early August. Currently, a lot of our membership is in college, so we end our season in time for those folks to go back to college.

Who or what is your namesake?

The "original" Logan Guards were from Lewistown, PA, and one of the Civil War's First Defenders.  These 92 men were one of five militia companies from the state to answer Lincoln's call for volunteers in April 1861. Check out these links for more information:
