Keeping with our tradition!

Our band is well known throughout that area as being excellent. We have received positive feedback from many schools, organizations and our local Professional Teams. This success comes as a result of our students and our families and their involvement and commitment to maintain our reputation. To help keep up this tradition, please consider stepping forward in any way for any position. We would like every family to participate in some way to support our kids. It is always a great time and a great way to make friends and support your kids. Any questions please let someone know and we will be happy to give you information.
