Wildcats marching band ready for fourth season

April 1, 2008

Albany--  The South Georgia Wildcats Marching band is a little smaller this year but they promise the same big sounds this weekend.

Band members spent the evening practicing for the Wildcats first home game of the season Saturday. The band has become a popular part of the arena football games.

This year, the band is made up of 36 members from area schools. Everyone's excited to make their season debut and in their fourth year, there's still no one else like them.

"I know some other teams have been toying around with the idea but just having the band here just kind of adds a different element to arena football that hasn't traditionally been," said Band Manager Christopher Pike.

Managers are still looking for band members. They practice at 1304 West Broad Avenue. If you'd like to participate, you can come out this Thursday or Friday between 6 and 9 p.m.

There are also still tickets available to Saturday night's game.
