Many of you have probably heard about this, but it’s possible that some of you haven’t yet. Joe Angelo (a percussionist at WIU who’s from Geneseo) is working on starting the Knights as a new drum corps in the Quad Cities/Geneseo area. He’s working with some Knights alums, as well as a few WIU Marching Band alums who are in the region.
They’re still in the planning/organizational phase, but it looks like they’re really doing it right…making sure they have everything in order before jumping into anything.
The newest status update can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/notes/joe-angelo/knights-revival-update-21212/10150602965514443, so stop by and check it out. Eventually there’ll be a specific facebook page for it, but for now, I’ll just make sure to post links to the information.
I’m sure they’d welcome any support that any of you would be willing/able to give. If you’d like to help out in any way, please contact Joe Angelo at Joe@knightscorps.org or 309-230-5920.
