Coming off of an amazing season where the band won the 2018 Grade 2 World Championships, the EUSPBA upgraded the group to Grade 1 for the 2019 season making the DPB the only Grade 1 band in the United States.
The DPB had a successful trip to Georgetown (Ontario) back in June taking first prize in a medley draw contest against the 78th Fraser Highlanders and the 78th Halifax Citadel. The DPB spent a couple of months preparing for the trip to Maxville in August for the North American Championships.
After 2 very successful runs of the MSR and Medley, the band again took first prize in Grade 1 nudging out the 78th Fraser Highlanders on ensemble preference aggregate.
