HHS Band members hit the big time... 10 MEMBERS OF THE MILLION DOLLAR BAND
They have made the big time and it started in the Huntsville City Schools - amplified in the HHS Band. These outstanding men and women are the best of the University of Alabama's Million Dollar Band. Pictured with UA Director of Bands Dr. Ken Ozello: (L-R) Meghan Mackey, Katie Applebaum, Wade Pelham, CJ Drake, Nathan Strohman, Jason Wimsett, Alton Hudson, Carley Bourland, Keiran Eversole and Ansley Boles.

What to wear
Our uniform for this week is the same as the preview show. Wear the band polo, khaki shorts with belt, short (ankle socks), and tennis shoes. Color Guard wear your equivalent uniform. You should arrive in uniform with your shirt tucked in.
We will be in this uniform until our new uniforms arrive!
Although we are the visiting team, we will be performing our halftime show to the HOME side (same direction as this past week).
Please eat something prior to the game. We do not allow food or drinks in the stands except for water. You will not have the opportunity to visit the concession stand.
Bring your water bottle!
For the safety of our students and equipment, only band students, teachers, and chaperones should be in the band seating area.
You are responsible for making sure your instrument gets put in the correct spot to be loaded on the truck or getting your instrument to the game. Instructions will be given in class.
THANKS TO FIELD PAINTING CREW
Field painting happens every Sunday at 4pm. We need your help! Coordinate with your section leader if you are interested in helping out! It's a lot of fun and HAS to happen. Special thanks to Allie Polzin who is the main care-taker of the field!
