About Me

Me, Myself, and I
The Beginning

The Fusiliers' were founded in 1999 by seven local lads who believed they could produce a 'Blood and Thunder' style band to compete with other such bands in Northern Ireland. A lot of fundraising was required but that did not deter these lads from their dream and soon the band was able to purchase second hand flutes and drums. .With only around 25% of the members being able to play instruments from previous bands it was a slow start but gradually the band began to take shape. The band was now able to take to the road, a collection parade was organised and the money raised from this was used to kit the band out in sky blue trousers, white polo shirts and sky blue Tam O'Shanter hats. These were exciting times for the band and membership grew steadily in the early months. The Fusiliers' first official engagement was with 'No Surrender' L.O.L. 241 for the 1st July parade in Donaghadee in 2000, this was followed by the 'Twelfth' and 'Black Saturday'. 2000 also saw the band break on to the competition scene with moderate success.
