Riggie (AJ) Laus - Pittsburgh Rockets

Recommended Posts

It is with great sadness that I announce that Riggie Laus joined the great drum corps in the sky this morning. Riggie was the featured soloist for the Pittsburgh Rockets for 25 years and a ten time soprano bugle solo champion. I had the privilege of being taught by and marching with Riggie in 1973. He was instrumental in getting myself and several others to join a junior corps (as it was known back then) which eventually lead me to joining the Phantom Regiment in 1976. Riggie was a great horn player and an awesome person. The earthly drum corps community suffers a loss while the heavenly community rejoices their newest member. 

RIP Riggie!
