We are proud of the BDMB and the efforts towards pushing to Straight Superiors! It takes a village to make this a reality and to the MANY PEOPLE THAT MADE OUR SUCCESS POSSIBLE we say THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE!

As we look forward, we will continue to march as long as we can in the playoffs, however, our official Tuesday/Thursday rehearsals are now complete. If we continue all the way to the State Championships, we may choose to call one final rehearsal to prep for that game. Details to follow as the playoffs continue.

GREAT JOB BDMB! IE, GYB!

Please check Charms to confirm your payment or contact Mr. Janice Pedroza to see if you still owe for the items. This is a requirement for each of our members from the wind and percussion areas.
