Shree Muktajeevan Pipe Band Leads the London Parade
Thousands of performers from all around the world took part in London’s spectacular annual New Year’s Day Parade on 1st January 2007. Leading the
parade was Shree Muktajeevan Pipe Band, London.
This year the Parade celebrated its 21st Anniversary as Shree
Muktajeevan Pipe Band celebrates it’s 35th anniversary. The band
was proud to take part by marking its series of Worldwide
performances in honour of Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa, whose
Shatabdi (Centenary) celebrations are being held in October 2007
in Maninagar, Ahmedabad, India.
More than half a million people filled some of London’s most famous
streets to see the fantastic procession as it weaved its way along
the 2 mile route. The parade started at midday in Parliament Square
and finished in Piccadilly, passing Westminster Abbey, 10 Downing
Street, Royal Horse Guards and the World famous Trafalgar
More than 500 TV stations, in 50 countries, were fed live coverage
of the event via satellite – with many more watching live on the web.
Bob Bone, Executive Director of the Parade said: “We had the
greatest number of spectators on the streets – and a huge new TV
audience. The feedback has been fantastic – giving London the
perfect platform to show what it has to offer. We are delighted that
Shree Muktajeevan Pipe Band took part in the Parade. The crowds
are always delighted to see such a wonderful display of military
standard discipline and musical flair.”
