The Kingston Grenadiers are a Senior Drum Corps based in Kingston, Ontario.

History

The Grenadiers Drum and Bugle Corps, based in Kingston, Ontario, was formed in February of 1961. A member of the former The Princess of Wales Own Trumpet Band and other interested individuals held a meeting from which an executive committee was formed and the name the Limestone City Grenadier Drum and Bugle Corps was adopted. The name was changed to the Kingston Grenadiers a year later.

Along with many Canadian championships over four decades, perhaps performing for her Majesty The Queen and Prince Philip in honour of Kingston`s tercentenary was a standout highlight. The Grenadiers are probably the only corps ever to do so.

It is worth mentioning that the Grenadiers is the first Canadian corps to place in the top ten in DCA competition for six years in a row (1998-2003). The 2003 finish was tenth.

In 2004, the Grenadiers took top honors in DCA Class A, with the award-winning show 'SATB - Songs of the New York Voices.'
