The Battlin' Buckaroo Marching Band currently has over 40 members and performs at every home football game and away games. Director, Mr. Tracy Walker, is in his seventh year leading the district’s band program.
The band competition season consists of contests at UA-Monticello and regional concerts, where the band has received superior and excellent ratings each year. Students participate each year in the All-Region clinic, trying out to see if they will make a chair in the first or second ASBOA Region Band.
Every year the band performs in the El Dorado Christmas Parade, winning 1st Place for the last few years. The band put on a Christmas concert for the community during the holidays.
During the spring semester the band participates in the ASBOA concert assessments, receiving Superior and Excellent ratings. The last two years the band has competed in the Battle of the Bands in Fordyce, Ark., and has received Superior ratings in all categories. The band closes its year out with the annual Band Banquet to honor the band’s seniors for their hard work and dedication.
