Our Mission . . .

To  preserve,  promote, and  perpetuate the art of bugling by  recognizing and  honoring those who have displayed  superior performance skills, and have demonstrated valuable and significant long-term influence on the art of bugle  and brass performance by example  or  mentoring of others.


2023 marks 18 years of service with a total membership of 165. 

On these pages you can  learn  a brief  history of the bugle and meet the men and  women  inducted  to  the  hall  of  fame since our beginning in 2005.

Enjoy the site. It's always evolving with  much more to come!
