Originally the Wink Strutters Drum and Bugle Band, the group also marched under the name 1st Canadian Regiment for ten years.
In the fall of 1997, the volunteer board of the Strutters developed a plan to realign the organization to meet the changing needs of today's youth. Deep rooted philosophical changes were needed in order to ensure continued success and perhaps the corps' existence into the new millennium and beyond.
"We need to ensure that our organization is accessible and rewarding for all young people regardless of experience, physical limitations or financial status to expand our membership and refine our teaching initiatives.
"These statements must reflect our commitment to teaching performing arts and on entertaining our viewing audience."
Although the drum and bugle corps is a competitive activity, a philosophical change ensued that allowed audiences to become the judges of the Strutters' success. "Get them to their feet in applause and let our score be a byproduct of audience reaction. "
The Strutters also offered a winter corps program along the lines of 'Blast!,' entitled 'Back in Da House.'
The Edmonton Strutter Junior Corps was added in 2001 to give youth ages 7 to 13 an opportunity to share the drum corps experience, as well as learn basic music and dance skills.
In 2002, the Strutters finished 18th in DCI Division III Prelims.
In honor of their 40th anniversary in 2003, the Strutters put together a program of 'All Things Canadian.'
Percussion instructor Steve Kress set a record for the longest snare solo, at 18 hours and 7 minutes, on November 11-12, 2003. This he did in true Canadian style: outdoors.
After the 2003 season, The Edmonton Strutters merged with Allegiance Elite of Calgary to form Fusion, based in Edmonton.
