The 1956 marching season was a particularly successful one for the Benton
Harbor High School Marching Band. In addition to presenting half-time
shows for the five home football games, the Band dazzled football fans at
Muskegon and Niles.
Colorful formations and catchy tunes captured the attention of audiences
throughout the football season. One especially memorable show was dedicated
to teen-agers and their musicg the show was brought to a rollicking climax by
the playing of the popular "Hound Dog."
On October 10 on Filstrup Field the band, participating in the Southwest-
ern Michigan Marching Festival along with other area bands, presented a
typical half-time show and received a Division I rating from the judges.
The band's successes didn't just happeng plenty of skillful planning and
hard work were behind each show. Just as the football coaches drill their
players, Mr. Kuschel drills his bandsmen for many hours before each per-
formance. The band began work before school started in the fall and prac-
ticed every day and every Thursday night during the football season.
