For the first time, the officers and a planning committe of two put together a potluck, aimed at getting the freshmen more comfortable with the returning members before school started. Thanks to the brilliant planning by the two girls on the committe, the event ran smoothly and was packed with fun. I was very happy to hear positive reactions from our band director, students, and parents alike.
I, for one, have my own tie-die shirt hanging in my bathroom right now, waiting to dry so that I can proudly wear it on my first day of school.
Well, perhaps tie-die isn’t such a great choice of wear for the very first day, but I’m sure I’ll wear it sometime during the first week. Month. I’ll wear it eventually, I suppose.
P.S. We also got a new tune for Pep Band this year: Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5.
Our high school Pep Band had our first home game of the season. For those of you that don’t know, our school has a Pep Band that plays rockin’ awesome tunes for each of our football team’s home games. It’s a whole lot of jam packed fun and excitement, all the way from top-of-the-lung cheers to a Sousaphone solo section. Playing funky and groovy music with a talented group of friends can be quite a fantastic feeling.
I’m looking forward to the two other games that are coming up. But for now, the tiredness is taking its toll on me; good night!
Our Pep Band will be playing this song in the city parade in June.
Every football season at our high school our band takes on the role of a Pep Band and plays at the football games. Not only are the songs so much fun to play, but the memories of going out there and playing with friends for hours, rain or shine, simply cannot be replaced. I cannot wait for next year to come around.
Speaking of songs, we play some great tunes such as I Want You Back, NFL on Fox, Brick House, The Way I Are, YMCA, Rocky, Land of a Thousand Dances, Soul Man, and many more.
But with no doubt, our favorite and all time classic:
