Burbank & Burroughs Alumni Band Looking For Musicians

The Burbank and Burroughs Alumni Band is looking for musicians to march in the upcoming Burbank On Parade. The band traditionally marches in the parade each year along with alumni cheerleaders and baton twirling majorettes.

If you are a former band or drill team member from either of the two high schools, you can be part of the Alumni Band.  They especially need drummers.  According to the band’s manager, Cheryl Smith McMillan, the band has a bass drum, a snare drum (but you need to bring your own sticks), and the loan of a tenor drum.

Their band uniforms are fairly simple, blue jeans or black pants, and a white Alumni Band t-shirt, or if you don’t have one, just a plain white t-shirt.

Just one rehearsal will be held, on April 6, the morning of the parade a 9:30 a.m. in the band formation area on Brighton St. between Olive Ave. and Verdugo Ave.  The parade begins at 11 a.m. on Olive Ave., from Keystone St. past the Olive Recreation Center in George Izay Park, to Lomita St.
