Join the Drumbeat for a new Blair Drumline!

Support the Montgomery Blair Blazer Pride Marching Band!

Our marching band is growing! We are a multiracial school of over 3000 students. The band is increasingly a unifying force. We bring energy and pride to football games, local parades, school and community events and competitions. And we bring together kids who might not otherwise know each other. In their own words..
"The Marching Band is one of the most supportive and inclusive environments that I've come to know; it's a community where every individual matters, which is crucial to the success of the group." Band goes above music and performing, it exemplifies what it means to be a family.

The drumline is the cornerstone of a marching band, but our drums are shot. The rims are warped...the drums fall out of tune.. the drums even fall out of their harnesses! Our band will give back in music and joy every $1 you invest in us.

Help us make music. Help us bring joy and make memories -- for band members, athletes, and kids at parades. AND, your donations ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.

Help us build a drumbeat for a new drumline!
