The Cimarron High School Marching Band has been working on a new theme this year.  Under the direction of Mr. Josh Ralston,  the band is bringing a Latin Pop sound to the field.  Students are playing “Smooth” by Santana, “Havana” by Camila Cabello, and” Livin’ La Vida Loca” by Ricky Martin.  The band is enjoying the great rhythm of these songs, and of course, there is always room for more cowbell.  At the last home game, the band had the crowd rocking to the rhythm as sophomore Andrew Pfeifer swayed his way around the field as he played the cowbell.  

Sadly, due to COVID, there is no high school marching band competition. However,  that doesn’t mean that the band isn’t focusing on marching fundamentals for next year. They have been working together with drum major Alexis Neis to hone their skills with plans to bring home another 1 rating. 

It’s always a crowd favorite when the band goes above and beyond for some Halloween fun.  It will be a spooky, rockin’ good time at the next home game courtesy of your CHS Marching Band.
