Eight o ' clock in the morning marks the practice session five days during the week for the band members. The band per¬ forms annually for the school body. During its annual concert, the band provides music for people with all kinds of different music tastes, the old as well as the new. Rocky ' s Dance Band also participates in these concerts as well as in the exchange assembly programs. Their listeners love the lively dance music. The band marches and plays during the months of football. During the pre-game activity on those cold. fall months, Rocky ' s band played the school song and introduced the team. This was followed by the Star Spangled Banner, with all standing facing our nation ' s flag, hands on their hearts. Half-time during the Septem¬ ber, October and November months found the band members providing appropriate entertainment. The band plays a big role in boosting school spirit for the entire audience through its marching and playing.
