Marching Gaels Calendar update:

DCI at AMC Update and link to pre-sale tickets:…/2017-08-10/amc-rockaway-16/all

Marching Gaels,

We have exciting news for you this morning. Due to the positive response from Gaels members, rehearsal on August 10th will be canceled so many of you can attend DCI 2017: Big, Loud & Live at AMC Rockaway!

This email is coming out early because we STRONGLY recommend pre-ordering your tickets today, or ASAP, to make sure you reserve your seat as the theater gets pretty filled with excited DCI fans. I have seen the show posted on AMC's website as well as Fandango. As a reminder, to help you find your tickets:

Name: DCI 2017: Big, Loud & Live 14
Date: August 10, 2017
Location: AMC Theater, Rockaway NJ
Time: 6:30

Outside of those members who signed up to come, everyone is welcome to join us. Remember, this isn't technically a marching band event so you are responsible for rides, tickets, etc.

And finally, those of you who did commit to going, thank you for your enthusiasm and interest in seeing this activity performed at its highest level! I am told that the shows this year are very creative and exciting!

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions, and we'll see you there!
Mr. Sweer

Easy and fun band fundrasier

How about an easy and fun fundraiser for the band where you have to do almost nothing....what is that you ask?  Why a seat cushion fundraiser of course.

We all know that our stadium and others we visit are cold and not to comfy.  Why not bring along a Roxbury seat cushion!

Show your Roxbury pride with this great seat cushion.  Regardless of the sport your kid plays, this seat cushion will come in handy.

Download the order form today and bring it to a band camp pick up night or bring it to the parent meet and greet on Saturday Aug 26th 8pm.  Either way, you will stay warmer, support the band and show your Roxbury pride.

Here is a link to the form.

9th Annual Marching Band Classic is set!

Our date has been set, Saturday Sept 23, 2017 is the 9th Annual Roxbury Marching Band Classic. Join us for this fantastic event.  Sign up your school right here.

The Roxbury High School (NJ) Instrumental Music Program is nationally recognized for its excellence and for preparing the next generation of students for life beyond high school. In 2016, various RHS instrumental ensembles will travel to festivals and competitions to showcase their talent and professionalism. The Roxbury High School Band Parents Association has set up this GoFundMe in an effort to raise funds to offset the high costs associated with these events.  

We need your help to reach our goal. Your generous, tax-deductible, donation will help us to ensure that our kids will participate in top-notch events and have some once in a lifetime experiences. Thank you so much for your support.
