ATTENTION ALL WAYNESVILLE SPARTAN MARCHING BAND ALUMNI

This year, the Waynesville Marching Band is once again inviting any band alumni to join us on Friday, September 21, 2018 (Homecoming) for our Alumni Marching Band!  We will meet at 4:00pm in the band room on Friday to get organized, and then rehearse with the high school band from 4:30-5:15pm in the stadium before the game.  The current band members and our Band Boosters will provide dinner for everyone after rehearsing.  Alumni band members will march out in the pre game block and play the fight song and Star Spangled Banner (and make the tunnel for the team!).  We will then form the same block and march out to perform a halftime show of three tunes (Hang on Sloopy, Crazy Train, and The Hey Song).
Anyone who is interested, please contact Leslie Schleman at lschleman@wayne-local.com or call the band office (897-2776 x. 3117) by Wednesday, September 19th.  I need to know what instrument you play and whether or not you will need an instrument for the game.  If you want music to practice before the 21st, there are PDF files of all the tunes we will play on the “Alumni” page of the band’s website.
We look forward to seeing you there!!
