It’s time to pay a visit to Start High School, home of the Spartans and home of our fourth Band of the Week.
Like most marching bands, Start students believe in traditions. Theirs is a wacky one.
“Whenever we win, it’s fun for the band because have our little tradition," flutist Rebecca Consani said. "If we’re in our full uniforms we put our helmets backwards. It’s interesting to march with.”
The 32 members of the Start High School Spartan Marching Band work hard to do their best for their team and for each other on and off the field.
“Sometimes it can be family, sometimes it can be we want to rip each other’s throats out," snare drummer Manny Wagner said. "But at the end of the day, as long as we sound good, there’s no complaints.”
