Five members of the Haleyville High School Roaring Lion Band volunteered to join up with students from dozens of other high schools from across Alabama, Tennessee, and Mississippi to take part in the “Band Extravaganza” hosted by the University of North Alabama Pride of Dixie Band. Over 800 students were in attendance in the group, along with the Pride of Dixie, and performed at halftime of the UNA vs. Langston University (Oklahoma) game.
A small group of Roaring Lion band members will be at Wal-Mart performing this Saturday, September 27, 2014 and holding a “Fill the Bucket” fundraiser. Everyone is encouraged to attend to support the band. Also, Band Director Reggie Tolbert and the Haleyville Band Boosters would like to thank the community for all of the support in the BBQ dinner and the “Drive One For Your School” event.
