This Band is GOOD! Wow! HOMECOMING

Hello Hawk Band Members, Alumni, and Fans:

First, let me say that being the new SH Band Director is wonderful.

Secondly, I would like to invite you all to our next performance, at Homecoming on the 14th of September.

Homecoming will be a special night for the Hawk Band. The Band will be wearing their new uniforms for the first time, and our show will be a lot of fun.

Our theme is "Hair Metal Favorites", and our tunes are...

-"The Final Countdown" by Europe
-"Bang Your Head (Metal Health)" by Quiet Riot
-"You Give Love A Bad Name" by Bon Jovi

We aim to play a new show for you every week, and "cruise" around a bit more as the season goes on. Please come out and support the Hawk Band, the Cheerleaders, our beloved Football Team, and our community as we celebrate Homecoming 2012. A special "THANKS" to the SH Music Boosters and SH Community for funding our new uniforms and for supporting "The Hawk Band".

Let's Go Hawks!!

Mr. Klaver


PRIDE! "We're from South High..."

SH Band Members, Alumni, Staff, Friends, and Parents:

It's hard to express the feeling I had the other day when the South Hamilton Band played our school song, "The Great Plains March", for the first time this school year.

Wow! The band sounded amazing! I actually got goosebumps as the Band played that familiar melody. I was so filled with pride, that I had to take a step back and cherish the moment.

Having been a member of the SH Band in my younger days, I must have played the School Song a thousand times. Standing in front of the group for the first time as their new director was truly an awesome experience. As the lyrics to our beloved school song proclaim..."We're from South High, and we'll be proud till the day we die..."

Let me say that hearing our Band and having the honor to be their director certainly made me proud.
I'm filled with South High Pride and am looking forward to many more awesome moments / memories with our Band in the future. What a great group of young people.

Thank you Band for one of the coolest moments ever!

Mr. Klaver
