Former members of the Pride Of Robinson Jimie Maley and Hiott Hames participated in the 1st ever Intercollegiate Marching Band performance. The show was broadcast on January 11, 2021 during the CFP National Championship Game. I hope you take time to watch the video, it is very entertaining, and amazing the number of collegiate musicians, drum majors, twirlers and color guard members that contributed. I hope you enjoy the performance.

 

Former Drum Major of the Pride of Robinson Sean Andrade was appointed the Drum Major for the Appalachian State University Marching Mountaineers! Great Job Sean, that is a great accomplishment.
