D-B Alumni Band – Relive your glory days in J. Fred Johnson this September 29th

The Dobyns-Bennett Band is thrilled to host an Alumni Marching Band again. If you ever played an instrument, spun a flag, or beat a drum for the D-B Band, you’re invited! This year’s Alumni Band is sponsored by Natalie Wells, Managing Principal and Senior Financial Advisor of Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network.

Alumni Band will occur on Friday, September 29th during pregame of the D-B v. Elizabethton game. There is a registration fee of $20 and includes a reception, entrance to the game and a t-shirt.

Lafe Cook, Director of Bands shared, “I’m excited to see alumni. It’s always good to hear what alumni are doing now and celebrate our tradition of excellence, which has excited for almost 100 years. I hope alumni that don't play anymore will consider attending. I’d love to see the field completely filled during pregame!”

If alumni would like to participate and play an instrument, but no longer have one, the band can provide one. Just be sure to check the box on the registration form, and directors will reach out. If you’re already registered, please visit dbband.org/alumni-band to download your pre-game materials.

To guarantee the band will have your shirt size, please RSVP by Friday, September 15th. Event day registrations will be available, but the band can not guarantee a shirt.
