The D(r)umb Majur(k) of the Lady Godiva Memorial Bnad provides the beat to which the Bnad plays. The D(r)umb Majur(k) plays a snare drum that is carried around on a harness, although they may drum on other objects or instruments during songs such as 'Wipeout'. The D(r)umb Majur(k) is a crucial part of 'Bnad quorum' which states that, in order to have a Bnad event, at least one current or former Bnad Leedur and one current or former D(r)umb Majur(k) must be present.

Selection[edit | edit source]

The D(r)umb Majur(k) has a term of one year and is selected every year during Godiva's Wake. However, at this point, they are known as the D(r)umb Miner. The D(r)umb Miner does not become the D(r)umb Majur(k) until Gradball two months later.

Current and Past D(r)umb Majur(k)s[edit | edit source]

The Original D(r)umb Majur(k) was Peter Noble, who at the time possessed both insuffucient musical talent to become BNAD Leedur, and a Bass Drum full of a beer. Upon threatening to go home some quick thinking by then Leedurs Tom Meadowcroft and Daryn Thompson, resulted in a new Leedurship position and a pretty good party!
