Pride of the Green Wave
A Night at Tuxedo Junction!
Birmingham, Alabama was the home to one of the most iconic Jazz Clubs of the 1930's and 40's. Tuxedo Junction saw every Jazz artist of the era perform and recruit players for their bands. Fess Whatley, a band director at Bessemer Technical High School was famous for training players who were ready for the big time. Join us as we travel back to "that place where people go to dance the night away". Let's go to the function at The Junction!
Our competition season comes to a close with a 5th place finish at the Alabama State Marching Band Championship. The Pride also earned All Superior ratings at the Heart of Dixie contest in Prattville, AL and Superior scores as well as outscoring several larger Atlanta area schools at the Southern Invitational Field Show Championships at Sprayberry High School in Marietta, GA. I am so proud of these students and the way they have grown this season. The fact that we have so many younger members is a further testament to the amount of work that has gone into this year's production. Achievement, Respect, Success! That is our motto at Leeds City Schools. The satisfaction and joy that these students exuded when they left the field Saturday is what it is all about. When every one of them said that it was the best performance they could do we achieved the goal! The Pride of the Green Wave has Achieved great things. The Pride of the Green Wave is Respected. The Pride of the Green Wave is a Success!
"The Strength of the Pride is the Member. The Strength of the Member is the Pride."
