For the fifth straight year, the AlumKnights supplied volunteers in support of the DNHS band’s participation in the New Mexico Pageant of Bands (POB) marching band competition on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at Wilson Stadium. AlumKnight volunteers included Marti Bass, Nancy Bennett, Terri Christiansen and Dan Jones.
The Del Norte Band is one of the ten APS POB Member Bands that produce this all-volunteer event that attracted 26 bands and 1,800 band members from across the state. A portion of the proceeds are disbursed to the POB Member Bands based on volunteer participation. Last year, the DNHS band received about $600 in this disbursement.
This year, the Phantom Knight Marching Band won 2nd place overall for Class A Bands at the Pageant of the Bands competition as well as Peoples Choice! Way to go Knights!
