Two songs are already set in motion and pat down for showtime. One is in progress and the other-- well, we aren’t there yet, but we are definitely ahead of many other bands in our region because we are learning the third song!
We are a wonderful group.
Loud and proud and powerful!
We are determined to win numerous awards and be the greatest we can be! We work three days a week after school and every day during school. We practice through heat and cold! We are one of the best marching bands… EVER! We definitely LEAD THE WAY!
We are all so excited for the performances to take off.
Make sure you follow the band around and enjoy our performances because We ARE AWESOME!
