Welcome Southerners!

Greetings from Dr. B

Hello Marching Southerners!

We are all very excited about the 2019 Production Earth, Wind, and Fire! This show has the potential to be one of those epic productions that members, fans, and alumni talk about for years to come. This show will definitely have several high velocity moments, so be sure to prepare physically over the summer months! I can’t wait to see the finished product on the field!

The staff and I are very excited to announce that the Marching Southerners will be featured in an exhibition this November at the Bands of America Grand Nationals in Indianapolis, Indiana! It has been 17 years since The Southerners last made an appearance at Grand Nationals!

I want to give a big JSU welcome to everyone who will be joining The Marching Southerners for the first time. A life-changing experience awaits you! You will find The Marching Southerners’ band camp to very enjoyable. Yes, we will work hard and get a lot accomplished; however, we have a great time while doing so. The atmosphere is very positive and we accomplish a great deal every day. As you prepare for camp, try to stay in shape and eat as healthy as possible over the summer. Please read the “Things to Know” section of the newsletter for additional information.

Everyone, including vets, must pre-register for band camp using the online band camp registration form. The pre-registration numbers will play a vital role in the number of spots written for the drill. If you plan to attend band camp and want to audition for the band, you must register prior to July 1. Anyone registering after July 1 will be given the lowest priority when considering people for the available positions.

New this year, you may pay your $100 band uniform maintenance fee online using our Band Fee Payment form. Note that a $3.00 fee will be applied to online payments.

The 2019 Southerners Rookie Camp will begin on Friday, Aug. 2, and the FULL Southerners Camp will begin on Sunday, Aug. 4.

Last but not least, if you are marching drum corps this summer, you must arrive for camp by the 6 p.m. rehearsal on Monday, Aug. 12.

Everyone please complete and submit the online band camp registration form today, and be sure to download and memorize all of the traditional stand music over the summer.

Have a great summer. I can’t wait to see you at camp!

Blow Southerners!
Dr. B
