Phantom Regiment 2014 – Final Stretch

Last two weeks of tour, good times with great people.

Photos from the last two weeks of tour – incredibly proud of these musicians!

A huge thank you to the team that made this season possible, from volunteers, tour staff, drivers, to instructional and admin staff.  We’re so appreciative of such a positive environment for the members of the Phantom Regiment.

To the members: thanks for all your relentless efforts and occasionally inappropriate shenanigans – humbled and honored to have been with you this summer!
