Agawam High Bandathon 2016

The 3rd annual music festival fundraiser to benefit the AHS band program. Music, alumni, vendors, food and fun...plus a dunk the director tank!!!

Mission: To help inform all band students and parents about fundraisers for the AHS BAND Program

Its been a very long time since I have posted on this group site. I am sure some of you already know, but for those of you who do not, Mr Davis has passed away.
I know he was a very important part of all our lives...especially those of us who were blessed to be a part of the band program during his years as director.
I thought perhaps we could all share stories of our experiences with him as well as a photo or two.
The band program at AHS was and always will be a huge part of my life. Mr Davis inspired many of us to be the very best we could be and made us understand how special it was to be a part of the AHS Band legacy...one that is going strong to this day thanks to all the directors who followed in Darcy's footsteps!
Rest in Peace Mr. Davis. You will always hold a very special place in my heart and musical soul!

[05/06/16]   The schedule I posted yesterday has been changed. I will repost later today. I completely forgot to add the Blue Skies Big Band!!! I am so sorry....So excited that they will be joining us for a spectacular day of 🎶!
