  • Much higher quality for price than a retail store
  • All sizes, price ranges, delivery and free layaway will be available.

Floor models will be on display in the Madison Jr.-Sr. High Commons from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 19. If you’ve been thinking about a new mattress, come check out this event!

Monday Rehearsal Reminder

Good afternoon!

I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of rehearsal tonight (and every Monday night through the rest of the summer). We will rehearse from 6:00-8:00. These rehearsals are critical in an effort to retain what we learned at camp, improve and expound upon it!

Please make an effort to be there at all costs. If you have a prior engagement, we totally understand. Please make an effort to email the absence information to aaron.west@madisonmohawks.org

Otherwise we look forward to seeing you this evening!

Have a great week!

Mr. West

Thanks for supporting the Band!

We had a record-setting car wash yesterday! The beautiful weather helped, but we couldn’t have done it without the hard work of all the band members and parents who came out to help, the good folks of McDonald’s who welcome us back year after year, and especially the generosity of the community who came out to get their cars washed and to donate to the Mohawk Marching Band. We’ll do another car wash on August 8, so we look forward to seeing all of you (and your dirty cars) again!

2015-2016 Drumline Audition Results

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…

Snares:

Allison Byrd
Mo Cornett
Ethan Owens
Kelsi Tidwell
Sarah Wolfe

Quads:

Danny Sturgis
Eric Trent

Basses:

1 – Tucker Wood
2 – Trevor Payne
3 – Kayla Ligget
4 – Luke Helton
5 – Josh Retherford

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!

Getting Band texts – updated instructions

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.

Watch for the new band trailer around Madison and beyond!

Thanks to everyone who made the newly decorated Mohawk Band trailer a reality, including superintendent Curtis Philpot, Madison Locals Schools, Bobby Reed, the Madison Music Boosters, Digital Visuals, and the businesses and organizations who helped the makeover become a reality:

Be sure to thank these community businesses for supporting the Mohawk Band!
