GEN­TRY — For those who have not seen it, the Gen­try Pi­o­neer March­ing Band has been hard at work learn­ing new mu­sic and new rou­tines for this year’s half­time per­for­mances.

The band’s show this year is called “The Sa­mu­rai and the Maiden” and was writ­ten by Ran­dall Stan­dridge. Band mem­bers added sa­mu­rai head­bands to their uni­forms and play mu­sic which tells the story.

The band is un­der the di­rec­tion of Karri Wes­son. Amanda Smith is the drum ma­jor, and Holden Wills is the as­sis­tant drum ma­jor.
