Thank you everyone who attended the drumline clinic last week and made time for the audition process as well. This year, the preparation was more evident than ever with very prepared auditions from all individuals. It’s definitely going to be an exciting year for the Marching Mohawks!
Congratulations to this year’s Mohawk Drumline…

Every student auditioned extremely well, making for a very difficult decision. Every student, regardless of placement, holds a very important part in the ensemble. I am particularly excited about the level of leadership in all areas of the percussion sections this year, on the field and in the front ensemble, veterans and rookies.
2015-2016 will be a very strong year with this strong group of musicians, leaders, and students!

If you’re already signed up for texts from the Mohawk Band via the Remind service (formerly called Remind 101), you’re all set for the coming fall marching season. But if you’re getting these messages from the Madison website, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or emails, here are two good reasons to also sign up for the Remind texts:
- day-before reminds of rehearsals and performances, and
- ETA texts when the band is returning from away games and performances
Also this year, we’re going to experiment with an extra feature: when the band departs from an away game or performance, you’ll get a text telling our estimated time of arrival at school, along with a link to an online map the will let you follow the progress of the band bus all the way back to Madison. We’ll try it out this Friday on the way back from the Talawanda game; let Mr. Brown know how it works for you!
To sign up for the Band’s Remind texts (also available via email):
- click here to fill out the sign-up form; or
- send a text to (408) 458-8033 with the message @mohawkband
Guard members & parents should also sign up for extra Reminders:
- click here to fill out the sign-up form; or
- send a text to (408) 458-8033 with the message @mohawkflag
If you have any problems signing up, please email Mr. Brown.
