The Blue Knights, a Top 7 DCI Drum and Bugle Corps from Denver, Colorado, will be practicing in our
own NHS Blue & Gold Stadium tomorrow, Friday, August 4!!
The Blue Knights have 150 performers, all under the age of 21 and representing 30 different states and 4 countries; during the summer they travel for 85 days from coast to coast rehearsing and performing their show for thousands daily... and their 2017 Tour Director -- our own NHS alum and Head Visual Instructor Ricky Grasso -- is bringing them here.
Join us! This is your chance to see a professional marching band and experience the "Major Leagues" of the marching band world... for free! You don't want to miss it!
