Default Long Beach Games 1977

I came across two pics I took at the Long Beach Highland Games in 1977.

(The Games had been in Santa Monica, then they were in Long Beach a couple years, until moving to Costa Mesa.)

They're of the Massed Bands and taken, it appears, about a mile away!

Here's the overall pic of the Massed Bands

I did four crops going across. It's interesting to try to pick out the Pipe Majors and bands.

Any help would be appreciated!

Here I can see Reuben Santos in the Culloden Moor kilt. What are the other bands?

There's the band in red velvet Montrose jackets. As I recall they wore Anderson kilts. Who is the Pipe Major?

I'm pretty sure that's Charlie Lumsden and his Caledonian Pipe Band.

Is that John Rosenberger and the Camerons of San Diego?

Continuing across, on the right is Tamar Woolery in the yellow MacLeod kilt, and beside her I think it's John Partanen in his green and white MacDonald kilt.

The far-right photo shows a band in what appears to be Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders kit.
