The Grade 2 400 RCAF Squadron Pipes & Drums have made a change at the leading-drummer spot, with Mark Passmore taking over from Dan Bist who had led the section for the past three years.

Passmore previously has been a member of the Grade 1 Peel Regional Police and 78th Fraser Highlanders, and was Leading-Drummer of the Grade 2 Glengarry Pipe Band and is currently a full-time drumming instructor with the Canadian Forces.

According to a statement from 400 Squadron, Bist will reportedly “take a break from competitive bands for the near future.”

Mark will be a key ingredient in our way forward

Drummers: When a drum corps is practicing the person in charge of tuning should stand behind the corps to listen rather than stand in front. The corps sound is completely different from the back which is where the drumming judge will be standing when youre performing.
