Hey B8: I Hope you consider joining the Jazz Collective for the 2020-2021 season! We are interested in anyone joining on any instrument. The Collective is an expanded concept of what it means to be a jazz band. You play bassoon, come on in! You play clarinet, come on in! You play zither, come on in!

Only requirement is an open mind and a willingness to try things and learn and grow as a musician!

Email Dr. Mac for more questions.

Camira is sad now that the marching band season is over. But she does have a fine warm hat and scarf and will continue to support the B8 in the offseason.

Friendship,Music and Food! A fitting end to another great marching season. Although the weather was challenging at times this season, the band played on! The British Invasion was a fun theme enjoyed by all. Looking forward to more great things in the future.

A special thanks to our Seniors! Your contributions and dedication to the band are much appreciated. The very best of luck in your new adventures upon graduation.

Don't forget about the Alumni Band!

Please keep sharing and commenting on the posts. There was a modest increase in shares for the last post, and that did help increase the exposure for the B8.

Thanks, and of course, GO BAND!

The weather was "interesting", the game exciting, and the band was great! Bittersweet for the seniors I am sure. They will be sorely missed.

As we start to plan for next year's B8 season, recruiting new talent to compliment the returning band members is an important topic. One of the best ways to do so is to spread the B8 story and images. Sharing the Facebook postings that you like with as many friends and family members as you can will help immensely . The B8 is a great tradition, lets add new members to continue it! Thanks for your help.

The dreary weather made me do it!

It was so dark and dreary this morning, that I thought of this slightly different Halloween image. Laura took the photo, and I processed it to up the creepy factor. I would not open the door to this fellow tomorrow night!

Across the Field: A glimpse into the British Eighth

The British Eighth’s size and sound are modeled after the military bands of 20th century England. The strict military stride, including pointed toe and stately tempos, are unique and authentically British. The band’s uniform is a detailed reproduction of the Buckingham Palace Honor Guard, including traditional red coat, black pants trimmed in gold, with a white belt, gold-buttoned coattails, and a black bearskin shako.

Albion students are the best-est!
As I finish my third year as director of the British Eighth I must say "what a wonderful group of people". So much growth, their dedication to the music, marching and most important to one another. I am looking forward to the next years as we get bigger and better. Thank you all for your hard work. Go Brits! Go Band!
Words can not express the joy this group brings to me. The dedication to not only the music, the college or the traditions but their dedication to one another, with caring seen so seldom. BRAVO band. Thanks for the best year, looking forward to an even better one next season.
British Eighth Family and Friends: If your student is a member of the British Eighth Marching Band, I cordially invite you to attend our annual Band Parent Social! This event is happening this upcoming Sunday, November 3rd from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM on the 2nd floor of the Kellogg Center before the End of Season Indoor Concert at 4:00 PM in Goodrich Chapel. We hold this event to enable parents/guardians/friends and students to socialize with other people within our band community to celebrate yet another fantastic marching season with the British Eighth. There will be food, music, a raffle, and more, so please come to this wonderful event! I hope to see you there! - Charlotte Groleau Band President and VPS of Kappa Kappa Psi
Hey band, friends, and family! If you are a color-guard alumni and will be at the Homecoming game this Saturday, here is the routine for Hey Jude, if you would like to practice it! We hope to see you there!
