Renegades Minicorps to perform in Las Vegas, Toronto

The San Francisco Renegades Minicorps, in their third collaboration with CorpsImpact, will be traveling to Las Vegas, NV, and Toronto, ONT, Canada for upcoming performances for major corporations.

Twelve of the Renegades finest brass players along with three CorpsImpact percussionists and five color guard will be performing at Mandalay Bay Resort January 6 at a conference for Symbol Technologies, a high-tech scanner company. Mandalay Bay Resort is one of Vegas’ top resorts with the House of Blues on the premises, along with 11 restaurants, a million-gallon walk-through aquarium, beach and wave pool, a museum displaying rare coins and currency, a 12,000-seat arena complex and an 1,800-seat concert hall on the 34th floor.

Toronto will be the site of their next appearance, when the group performs January 28 for Lifescan, a Johnson & Johnson company and leading maker of monitoring systems for diabetics. Again, 12 brass will meet up with CorpsImpact’s percussionists and color guard members to perform their program for this corporate conference.

The collaboration between CorpsImpact and the Renegades was created using the Renegades’ 2002 show opener, Mambo from “West Side Story,” as the basis for a fast-paced production designed by Renegades Executive Director Chris Nalls with Producer Frank Boehm and his staff. In 2002, this partnership produced performances for the IBM PartnerWorld opening ceremonies in San Francisco and the American Academy of Physician Assistants’ annual convention in Boston.

The Renegades Minicorps has been in existence since 2001, when they won the World Championships in Syracuse, NY. The full 140 members of the Renegades Drum & Bugle Corps will be performing their show, “Red Skies at Night: Midnight in the Stadium of Good and Evil,” throughout California this summer before venturing to the Drum Corps Associates Championships in Scranton, PA in August. The Renegades Minicorps will also travel to Scranton, where they will again compete for the title of World Champions after a one-year hiatus.

The Renegades are available to perform for corporate events and privately funded functions. Visit www.renegades.org for future show announcements and for further information on how to hire the Renegades for your corporate events or concerts.
