Hurricane Marching Band

ALma Bryant 2017 Hurricane Band
ALma Bryant 2017 Hurricane Band

 

The fall of 2016 the halftime theme was “You think You can Dance?” Opening with Attitude Dance from the Tower of Power, followed by Wake Me Up, the international hit by Swedish DJ and producer Avicii. The band then sings the introduction of Hooked on a Feeling, which was #1 in 1974 and brought back to life by Guardians of the Galaxy movie. We closed the dance show with Paula Abdul’s 1989 Cold-Hearted popularized in the Drumline movie... The 2016 Hurricane Band won ALL SUPERIORS at Azalea City marching competition, and rated Overall Superior in Class AA in the Deep South Band Competition!

 

This fall of 2017 the halftime theme is “Latin Show Oye Como Va".  

Watch the colorful flag work of the Hurricane Flags and fancy footwork of the Kickin’ Cane Dancers as Drum Major Randy Le directs the band opening with this Spanish tune titled Santana in honor of a great Latin Jazz/Rock musician…. Carlos Santana.

 Enjoy the high kicks and fancy band moves in this 1963 hit written by Tito Puente that everyone knows: Oye Como Va.  Carlos Santana wrote the next tune that that means “new order of the ages” that he played with many famous people- this slow ethereal tune is called Novus.

 

Many musicians including Ricky Ricardo performed the closing tune of this year’s Latin show. Enjoy the Drumline solo in El Cumbanchero…
