Bands to ‘March on Madison’ on Sept. 26

MADISON – Flags will fly, rifles will spin, dancers will kick, and the best instrumental musicians in North Alabama will entertain at “March on Madison” on Sept. 26.

Sponsored by Bob Jones High School Band, March on Madison will be held in Madison City Schools Stadium. “The doors will be open by 5 p.m. with the first band taking the field at 6:15 p.m. The final performance will end around 8:30 p.m.,” parent volunteer and Bob Jones teacher Robin Dauma said.

“The night promises to be full of exciting performances by bands from local schools, including Bob Jones High School, James Clemens High School, Athens High School, Huntsville High School and Madison Academy,” Dauma said. In addition, the Discovery Panthers Band will perform as the only middle school unit.

Bob Jones will perform its football halftime show and the challenging competition show that ramps up marching and musical charts. Bob Jones Competition Dance Team will impress the spectators with their precision routines and high-kicking moves.

“March on Madison is bigger than ever this year,” Bob Jones Band Director Leigh Thomas said. “We are extending our reach beyond our city to showcase some of the best bands in North Alabama.”

“I love to showcase the hard work of our students, and there’s no better way to do so than by putting on three diverse performances under the lights of our home stadium,” Thomas said. “It also is great way for our community to show how much the marching arts mean to the city of Madison and to the surrounding counties as well.”

March on Madison provides the unique perspective for viewing all these local bands at the same venue at the same time. Otherwise, spectators would have to travel to numerous, regional marching competitions to see all of this talent on the field.

Tickets cost $5 and are available from any Bob Jones Band member or at the stadium gate. The concession stand will be fully stocked, and proceeds from concession sales will support the bands.

“Marching band or music fans of all ages are encouraged to come out to support these talented student musicians, guard members and dancers as they perform for the community,” Dauma said.
