HHS meets Hunters Lane in ‘Battle for Unity’
The HHS marching band will travel to Hunters Lane High on Saturday for a battle of the bands.
The event is being called the first “Battle for Unity” and features the HHS “Band of Gold” and the Hunters Lane “Human Boombox.”
“The idea is to get the two groups together,” said HHS band director Dr. Jeff Phillips. “We’re not doing this to compete but to bring groups together and have a good time.”
Band members seem excited to go. “I’m pumped and ready,” said junior Natori Simmons.
The Golden Sparks, HHS’ new majorettes team, will also perform.
The Battle of the Bands begins at 6 p.m. at the school, at 1150 Hunters Lane in Nashville. Admission is $10.
