A Bright Future for the Mighty Button Band

The Mighty Button Band has seen a reenergized transformation with the arrival of new directors, Mr. Danny Solis and Mr. Alex Sanchez. They have given a rekindled spirit to this organization and its members through the various venues of performance which the band has been actively involved in throughout 2017-2018. The band achieved the honor of being named the 2017 TAPPS State Marching Champions and one of three Feature Bands at the 2018 Battle of Bands Fiesta Show. The band will also compete at the 2018 TAPPS Concert Sight-reading Contest in Temple for the first time in many years. Thanks to the generosity of the Alumni Association, most recently members of the band were outfitted for their new band uniforms, to be debuted next fall during football season. Members of the band also traveled to Ireland during spring break where they experienced an incredible time learning about the history of Ireland and visiting many of the

historic land sights such as the Infamous Wall that divided North- ern Ireland from the Republic of Ireland, the Cliffs of Mohr where many scenes have been filmed, castles which are still a part of the culture foundation in Ireland. The band also had the privilege of performing at the site of the construction of the RMS Titanic and the Limerick St. Patrick's Day Parade. The band is preparing for its final performances of the year, visiting with incoming freshmen, as well as making plans for the 2018 Marching Production of “ Gypsy Caravan.” Both Band Directors extend much appreciation to the parents, administration, faculty and community for their continued support of the Button Band.
