Marching Band – The Real Show-Stoppers of 2017!

Athena Kiriakoulis, Staff Writer

Fall has come around again, just in time to enjoy the football season. People gather around in the windy weather to find out which team will win, and watch as the cheerleaders encourage support for the team from the crowd. However, even though we may be there to see touchdowns, and are desperate for our team to emerge victorious, everyone can agree that they also get excited for the half time performances of our Marching band.

This year, the North Arlington marching band has started better than ever before, with a sensational set of arrangements originally performed by the famous singer, Bruno Mars, including Runaway Baby, Locked out of Heaven, Treasure, and the 2014 hit single Uptown Funk!

The 2017 season is led by Drum Majors Taylor Willis and Joseph Bertone, color guard captains Nicole Gac and Shamira Conteras, and field commanders Ben Soden and Tyler Golpe. They will be following the football team through all of their games, as well as performing on their own at the Weehawken marching band competition!
