This has been a rough month for marching bands!.
- In the 2nd round of Texas HS football playoffs, a wrong-way driver struck a bus carrying the Andrews ISD marching band, killing their director and injuring several players.
- At a Christmas parade in Waukesha, WI, a driver broke through barricades and struck dozens of parade participants, killing 5. Several members of the Waukesha marching band were injured.
The Allen Band Council is raising money to help these bands meet these unexpected expenses. All funds raised will be distributed evenly to the two bands. Please consider giving to help make a difference. Music makes the world a smaller place!
