Welcome to the band!
Here at Lake Brantley we have a proud tradition of excellence both on field and on stage. Our marching attire is a patriot style uniform that consists of a jacket, bibbers (pants), and a three cornered hat. Each year the students are loaned the uniform and a heavy duty garment bag for a set amount of time.
This year, uniforms distribution day is August 14th.
Your child will choose their appointment time to arrive at the band room to pick up their items.
In addition to the loaned items, band members also need to purchase socks, gloves, shoes, and a concert uniform. You can find more information about what is required in the the Uniform Newsletter. The Patriot's Closet is an affordable option for gently used items that have been donated from the previous year. The small shop is run by our volunteers and is open from 9:00am to 12:00pm on the last Friday of band camp.
