ATLANTIC CITY-The Jackson Liberty Lion Band proudly represented their school and town as they marched down the famous Atlantic City boardwalk in this year’s Miss America Parade. All 52 Miss America contestants were present, but the band proudly lead Miss Tennessee and Miss Texas down the parade route, with onlookers cheering, clapping and singing along to the band’s “Patriotic Parade Medley”.
Under the direction of Scott Katona, all 95 band members practiced hard over the summer, not only for the Miss America Parade but to learn and perfect their upcoming marching band show. Coming off last year’s status of NJ State Champions, this group’s work ethic and determination is high.
The group will be performing in 10 competitions throughout the state and participating in 4 parades, some out of state. They also perform at halftime for the school’s football games. For more information on the Liberty band, you can visit their facebook page or website, www.libertylionband.com
