TUNNEL HILL, Ga. (WRCB-DT) - You will definitely want to stick around for halftime at Northwest Whitfield games, this year. The Sound of the Blazing Blue Band is marching a show chocked full of memorable tunes from movie soundtracks. Director George "Smitty" Barnett tells me "Movie Mania" includes songs from The Avengers, "You've Got a Friend in Me" from Toy Story, a medley of pieces from The Wiz and The Wizard of Oz, closing with "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
The middle school band directors, Ben Black from New Hope Middle and Ben Milam from Westside Middle, assist with the Blazing Blue and tell me this is great group of students. Some 170 strong, they are called respectful and hard working, and with only a few seniors this year, look for good things for years to come in Tunnel Hill, GA!
They will next march in competition at the Yellow Jacket Classic on October 12th in Rockmart and are preparing for a big trip in the spring. Stay tuned for details. If you would like to help them reach their goals, call Mr. Barnett in the NW Whitfield Bandroom.
Our thanks to the Sound of the Blazing Blue for being our Band of the Week!
