For all the bandheads that have sat at home and watched young football players tell the world where they will be going to school, now we have our own show for marching bands!! That’s right on April 28th, 2015, The Marching Podcast will host the National Signing Day Show for Marching Bands. We have picked some students from all over the country to tell the world on our network where they will be going to school to get an education and to become part of the marching band family.
We are excited to bring some of our young people into the spotlight. We also wish to make a connection with them when they go compete at the highest level of excitement in marching arts. Finally, we hope to increase the knowledge and awareness of these schools and their band programs, so we can promote and generate excitement for young people to aspire. The students are:
Manuel Powell – Nansemond River High School in Suffolk, VA
Alexis Terry – Dominguez High School in Compton, CA
Cheyenne Allen – Dominguez High School in Compton, CA
Travis Johnson – McCluer South- Berkeley in St. Louis, MO
Special thanks to the Directors of these Schools, special thanks to Lolita Carter, and Terrell Stringer, and special thanks to John Pickens and Simply Dope Creative for designing our logo. Tune in Tuesday, April 28, 2015 @8pm EST to hear the announcements.
