Congrats Blue Knights and Band Backers!
A spectacular performance by the Blue Knights Marching Band at MOTK Saturday night with a score of 93.450. And thank you to everyone who helped make Music of the Knight a success!


States Tickets available 10/26, 5:30pm-6:30pm
Everyone attending the next three USBands events are required to purchase a ticket to each event, including Pit/Prop, Chaperones, etc. We only have 100 States tickets and are required to sell 90. The face value is $20 but we can sell them discounted for $15. This Wednesday, 10/26, we will be selling States tickets in the auditorium lobby. We will only have this one opportunity to sell States tickets this week. Please stop by between 5:30pm-6:30pm this Wednesday to purchase yours; we go through them fast! You may use points if you have them to purchase tickets. Mike and Mary Petruzzi will also be in the lobby with any MOTK apparel you purchased and need to pick up.


Nationals Tailgate/Buses and Tickets
We have reserved 4 coach buses again this year for our annual pilgrimage to MetLife Stadium and the National Championship competition. Once we have the tickets to sell we will put together a package price that will include one of the largest Tailgate cookouts you have ever seen, round trip transportation to MetLife Stadium and tickets to the event.


End of Season Band Banquet Date
We are still working hard to find a date for the Annual Band Banquet. We have found this year to be a bit more challenging than in the past to find a date with the least amount of conflicts. Thank you for your patience with this process.


Forms:  Did you (or your student) misplace forms? Never fear! All the forms are posted on the ===>forms page<=== as we we get them!


BKMB History
  Laura Shaw is working on a History of the Marching Band and Southington Music Program. She is looking for any information you may have; pictures, recordings, fundraiser flyers, etc. She has a lot of stuff from 1999 to the present, so anything before that would be awesome. She especially wants things played for marching band and orchestra, special events, trips, and odd and interesting stuff like selling cleaning products as a fundraiser..yeah they did that! Send anything you have to


Next Band Backer General Meeting is November 2
We will have a General Band Backer meeting Nov 2nd at 7:30pm in room C301. Minutes from the October 5, 2016 meeting are available by clicking THIS LINK.
This is where upcoming fundraisers and band events are discussed. Want to know more? Stop by!!!


Yard Signs
 We have a lawn sign that allows you, your family and neighbors the ability to show their support for the Marching Band.

These are two sided 18 X 24 inch signs and cost $20 each. If you are looking to purchase one, contact Tisha and Eric Semmel at They are available for purchase at any time.


Band Backer Legacy Supporter Program: Once a Band Backer always a Band Backer
  As someone who believes that a quality music program is something we need to preserve and continue to strengthen, what better community to reach out to then former Southington Band Backers and their families! You know first-hand what Southington's music program has done for your children. You know how lucky we are to have such a dedicated group of Music Educators in our town. You know that the Southington Band Backer organization's purpose is to strengthen and support the music programs in our schools. Your children may have moved on to bigger things but it's important to remember how they got there. With that spirit in mind we have a new opportunity for past Band Backers and their family's to continue to support and strengthen the Southington Music program for years to come. With an annual donation to the Southington Band Backers, a 501c3 charity, you will be listed as a Band Backer Legacy Supporter in the Music of the Knight Program Guide and receive 2 MOTK tickets as our thank you. You may choose from three Support levels. Bronze Level $100, Silver Level $200, and Gold Level $300. You know how important these programs are; please consider being a part of the sound for as long as you can. For more information or to pledge your support please contact Erik Semmel at Your charitable pledge of support will be billed to you automatically in July just before the marching band season begins.
