Bob Rogers Travel (BRT) has announced an exciting change coming to the Thanksgiving Parade of Bands at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Through BRT’s long-standing partnership with Jupiter Band Instruments, the company has introduced Presidio Brass as the new featured artist for the event.

The band will be first welcomed to the Thanksgiving Parade of Bands stage in November of 2017. Both BRT and Jupiter Band Instruments are excited to begin this new chapter of the event.

Members of Presidio Brass have performed with major symphony orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Pacific Symphony and San Diego Symphony. They have shared the stage with artists like Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, and Quincy Jones, and have also performed and provided educational outreach in over 40 states .

BRT has also stated that they “would like to thank and acknowledge the Boston Brass for their work in providing a top notch educational experience for students at the event for the past 5 years. We wish them nothing but the best in their future endeavors.”
