Phantom Regiment recently introduced an independent 10 person percussion ensemble, named the Rockford Percussion Machine (RPM), to perform at sporting events, corporate events, parades and other special functions.
"With a lot of our former alumni living in the Rockford area we wanted a performance group that would get them in front of an audience again, but also to attract younger drummers from the Northern Illinois area to come and be a part of something that is entertaining, fun, that will strengthen their skills as musicians and performers," said Phantom Regiment's director of development, Eric Sabach. "This will certainly be something that both Rockford and the Phantom Regiment can be proud of and will be a great addition to the organization's performance groups." RPM already has several performances scheduled at home games of the United Football League's Rock River Raptors, drum corps events and local festivals. Learn more about this group at
