The 2016 Winter Drumline was excited to receive the invitation from Roland Corporation to attend the 2016 NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants Trade Show) this past Saturday January 24th. Christopher Halon, vice president of marketing for Roland Corporation, has a son in the program and was happy to invite these great students. He was excited to plan the outing for the BOHS drumeline students because of all the vendors and instruments they would get to see related to percussion and music.

    BOHS Band Percussion Instructor Tony T. Nguyen planned the event along with Mr. Halon to have the entire drumline group attend with donated t-shirts and passes for the day.

      Tony was excited to give his students the opportunity to see the music trade show and how the industry has so much to offer with the different career's in music out there. A total of 26 students attended and were able to meet the President of U.S. Roland, Jay Wanamaker.

        The percussion and drum-line are fortunate to have such a committed Band Director, Joseph A Bartell, dedicated instructors like Tony, and parent volunteers. They are excited about their upcoming season of indoor drumline competition scheduled to start March 5th in San Diego. This season is sure to be one to remember with the purchase of three new large front ensemble instruments to accommodate the growing group along with a new floor mat, uniforms and drum wraps to match the theme, purchased by the BOHS Band and Color Guard Boosters.

          Stay tuned for an update this spring as we see what these dedicated students accomplish. Thank you Roland Corporation and Mr Christopher Halon.
