Hello Mighty Chiefs!

This week is the official start of the marching season with our first football game @ TBT! Just a few friendly reminders to make sure that we’re all prepared as possible to have a great week and performance:

-You will need a flip-folder and Lyre with all of the stand tunes we will prepare during class this week. You can get a flip-folder and Lyre for your instrument from Sam Ash Music Store.

-We will be wearing our show shirts (which will arrive Thursday) and Khakis for this first game. Guard will be wearing show shirt and black leggings.

-Fridays Itinerary will be released Wednesday. The band will be fed on Friday before we load busses and we are always looking for volunteers to help serve food to the kids as well as chaperones for the game! Contact Matt at for more info on how you can help make Friday night awesome!!

-We still have PLENTY of PDQ cards!! We’ve only had a handful of people sell HUNDREDS of dollars worth so far! It’s an easy fundraiser! Ask Mr. Fanara for a new form if you need one.

-We have rehearsal this Tues and Thurs from 4-7.

-Please keep up to date on Charms Calendar either at the Charms website or at

Thank you!! :)

Hello Band of the Mighty Chiefs! I hope you all have had a fantastic summer!

It is officially 10 DAYS until Band Camp!! Some announcements involving this:

  • You were mailed a packet with lots of information about being a part of the 2019 Marching Band. If you did not get this, it is located directly below this text box titled "Summer 2019 Mailer Band Camp Packet"

  • Medical release forms within said packet are due the FIRST day of band camp! Please get that done before July 29th.

  • In the coming week the Charms Calendar will get fully updated with every date that you need to mark in your calendar up until Nov 9th. The Calendar will get regularly updated, so make it a habit to check it every week or so.

  • Percussion/Guard Camp starts THIS Monday July 22nd! Check the Calendar for detailed information on that.

  • If you are missing any part of band camp you NEED to email and let me know at If you do not properly communicate, it could cost you your spot in the opener.

  • In the coming week I will be posting the music for the 2019 Show on this website. We will have an individualized music packet for each and every individual that will contain all required music. Please bring with you a 1 inch binder with clear page protectors for this music. If you loose the music or it gets destroyed, you will need to print a new one yourself or pay for a new copy. Easily avoidable if you bring a 1 inch binder with page protectors! :)

Thank you all, I look forward to meeting and working with each and every one of you! Have a great 10 more days of freedom! :D
