Rambler Marching Band
The Rambler Marching Band is a musical marching unit that meets as a 5th hour class during the first semester of the school year. The prerequisite for the Marching Band class is concurrent enrollment in the Symphonic Band. The ensemble consists of woodwinds, brass, percussion, and a color guard. Membership requires total dedication and maximum effort in all aspects of marching, playing, rehearsal, and performance.
The Rambler Marching Band provides entertainment at home football games, local parades and events, and at the District 5 MSBOA Marching Band Festival held in early October. The class meets mid-August through mid-October in school and evening rehearsals. The color guard and percussion sections may be expected to rehearse once every week in addition to the scheduled class meetings. Participation in the Marching Band will result in mandatory attendance at all rehearsals and performances, including the parades and band camps during the spring and summer.
The Rambler Marching Band is under the direction of Brad Arnold. The award-winning band boasts one of the strongest marching band traditions in Shiawassee County. They are considered “The Pride of Perry High School” and annually perform at the MSBOA Marching Band Festival in addition to local parades, football games, and at Kettunen Center's Marching Band Camp.
