This past Wednesday a crew of band dads came out and replaced our aged tires on the band trailer. Thank you to all who helped with ensuring we are safely traveling.
Saturday night the WDMB hit the ground running by taking the highest score of the William Penn show. Our band also took the special awards for best music, best visual, best percussion, best color guard and best drum major. The WDMB set a new all-time high debut score! Our score of 85.95 breaks the previous debut high score of 84.70 set in 2012.
Special note: Our percussion section scored a 90 in their special awards caption! This is an amazing accomplishment for our percussion section. Thank you to our percussion staff (all WDMB alumni): Madi (Brown) Marlin, Christopher Cullen and Matthew Blood for all of their care in making the WDMB's percussion section rock!
This is a great way to start a season!
Looking forward to this week:
