This week ARVBands traveled to Greenwood to catch the Greenwood Bulldog Marching Band in action. They were holding their Mass Band Night, where all band students 6th through 12th grades collectively joined on the field during pregame. The 7th through 12th grade played “Wipe Out” while the 6th-grade students danced along.
Once in the stands, the band played the fight song as the team entered the field. The band and football team are supportive of one another. As the team played, the students cheered and played to encourage their team. Band members were enthused by the game as each team traded scores.
During the 2nd Quarter, the band began preparation for their halftime performance. That night, the Greenwood Band was preparing for their first Marching Contest at Bentonville the next day. This was the first time for the band to wear their new uniforms and hats. As the color guard stretched and warmed up, the band circled up to tune and warm-up.
On the field, the Greenwood Band performed their 2019 performance titled, “Jilted.” Jilted is about a groom who is left at the altar by his fiancé. The band tells the story of how the groom deals with his emotions. This featured a trumpet solo and a flugelhorn-trumpet duet.
Our feature of Greenwood was exciting. Many of our early followers are from Greenwood. It was great to finally be on the sidelines covering the Bulldog Band. Jilted is a show that you do not want to miss. You can catch the show at the Region 8 Marching Assessment on October 15th at Northside High School.
