With no game on the week of September 20, 2015, due to a by-week, our band was taking no time off. The band kicked off their weekend with a parade on Saturday, September 26, 2015 giving back to the community in the form of music. The band paraded along with one other DeKalb county band, Mcnair High school.The parade started at new life Christian church and ended at South DeKalb Mall, performing a few selections for the community to enjoy. The next day, Sunday September 27, 2015 the band attended battle of the bands.
Battle of the bands took place at Hallford stadium including bands from all over the metropolitan Atlanta area. Southwest DeKalb High school band entertained the crowd with a great performance. Performing selections from artist like Fetty Wap, Janelle Monae, and more, the band ended with an energetic and clean dance routine. You can tell by the crowd’s reaction that they enjoyed the performance and found this performance as a great way to end their night. However, this is only the beginning of the band fall events and there is more greatness to come!
