Last played 17-1/2 years ago.   Although technically not the same organization, you might be able to get some historical information from Royal Roads University.

Decent recordings of 'Hatley Park', 'Black Bear', 'The Maple Leaf Forever' and other RRMC Band favorites are pretty rare these days.

The RRU museum (down in the old clothing stores) has a pretty decent collection of photos, G2G.

LOL...I think 'scrawny' was the word you were looking for, SKT.

RHLI, sorry about the de-rail.  If it helps, I can attest that the RRMC Band was one of the best in its day...

I second that.  For a bunch full time cadets, part-time bandsmen, the music was really, really good.
