Every year the Rebel marching band comes up with a theme for the new season, and they then choose a set list of songs to play that match the chosen theme. This season, the band has chosen to make all of their songs themed around the word “sweet”.

The marching band has a sweet line up this year with songs such as, “Sweet Caroline”, “Lady Marmalade”, “Groove-a-licious”, and “Sweet Home Alabama”. The idea for such a theme came to band director Kathy Peach while choosing this year’s songs for the new setlist.

“After looking through hundreds of songs, the one that stood out was ‘Sweet Caroline’. From this song I thought of the theme and chose the rest of the songs for the line-up,” Peach said.

“The idea was too delicious to pass up,” assistant band director Laura Horcher said.

The band will perform at Friday night football games during the halftime show. They have put a lot of work into these performances.

“The band had a week of band camp, practices every day in class, choreography some days after school, and practice on the field once a week,” said Peach.

In addition to marching, the band performs its Sacred Sounds concert coming up in the first weekend of October.
