The John P. Stevens Marching Hawks will be hosting its 30th annual Marching Band Festival on Sunday, October 1, beginning at 12:00 noon. The Festival will be held at McGowan Stadium located on our new turf field behind the high school. Twelve marching bands from Central New Jersey and the surrounding area will be performing their outstanding shows to vie for trophies including best overall band, best music, best effect, and many others.
This year’s John P. Stevens Hawks Marching Band is comprised of 182 members. The title of this year’s show is “Once Upon A Time,” featuring music from Aaron Guidry’s “FLYt & The Hero Within Us.”
Andrew DeNicola, John P. Stevens’ band director, says: “We have an extremely hard working group of students, tremendous staff, a great show to present, a supportive administration, and a parental group that is second to none---what else could a band director ask for.”
J.P. Stevens High School is located at 855 Grove Avenue, Edison. Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for seniors and students. We hope you will join us for an enjoyable afternoon of music, food, vendors, and fun all while supporting our marching band program.
