Alumni Marching Band - October 3
For the first time EVER, we will host a Fairbanks Alumni Marching Band on Friday, October 3 at our homecoming game. There has been some interest for years, but the pieces are finally falling into place for this to finally happen and we couldn't be more excited!
The best place for alumni to keep up with the goings on of this big event is on the Facebook event page, where they can RSVP and keep up to date with changes as the date draws nearer. I will need to know at least a week ahead of time who all is coming so I can get you in free and also make sure I have an instrument for you if you are a percussionist/low brass/mellophone.
The tentative schedule is:
4:45pm FMB rehearses for homecoming at Harmony
5:15pm Alumni Band music rehearsal at Harmony
5:45pm Combined bands rehearsal at Harmony
6:15pm Students dress for pre-game
6:50pm FMB/Alumni Band perform pre-game
7:00pm Game starts
8:00pm Halftime (Alumni Band will join for one song)
9:30pm Game over (FMB will play Les Mis show at post-game)
*Music will be available for download soon. The Alumni Band will play The Victors, Alma Mater, and Star Spangled Banner during pre-game and Seven Nation Army with the FMB at halftime.
*Uniform for the night will be blue jeans and red tshirt, shirt, jacket, or sweatshirt on top.
*Alumni Band members, with a timely RSVP, will be admitted free to the game.
*Oliver Pontius '11 will be helping me coordinate this event. Thanks to him for his assistance.
*Please share this news with any and ALL Fairbanks band alumni from any year. Even if you were only in the band for one year, you're still one of us. Guard members will also be accommodated.
*If you need further information, please post/comment in the Facebook event, or email me.
