The Londonderry High’s Lancer Drumline received a surprise call last week from the Boston Celtics with the message “We’d love to have you back!”
The call was an invitation to perform during the halftime of a playoff game – the Celtics vs. 76ers Eastern Conference Semifinal game on Monday, May 21st. For the thirty members of the Drumline it was a return to the parquet as they had performed earlier in the season on Feb 29th. Obviously our own Lancer Drumline leaves them wanting more!
The Drumline’s next performances will be during Londonderry’s Old Home Days with shows at Kidz Night on August 16th and on the Common Bandstand on August 18th.
For the record, the Celtics won both the Feb 29th and the May 21st games! Maybe the Drumline are the Celtic’s new lucky charm!
