Formations

The band is primarily a marching band, consisting of :-

Three drum majors

 

Twenty Four pipers

Two bass drummers

Four tenor drummers

Six snare drummers

The band has mastered set piece performances and formations. It skillfully arranges itself into the sign of Hinduism, the sathio, whilst marching along. It can also change from its normal four line marching formation into double concentric circles, representative of the Vishishtadvait Philosophy which is central to the Swaminarayan religion. The expertise shown through the drummers fanfare must genuinely be admired, and the confidence and flair of the drum majors whilst they twirl their maces is truly awe inspiring.
