Brad's Beat MSSU Alumni Band
By Brad Douglas
JOPLIN, MO.--- The band is getting back together at Missouri Southern State University. The MSSU Alumni Band is forming which is made up of former marching band members. Some of the members graduated back in the 1970's. Organizers say many members have fond memories of being in marching band and want to continue to show their school pride. Many are still worried they won't be able to still play as well as they did in their prime.
"You'd be amazed at some of the e-mails I get from people. I haven't played in 30 years. I was great in college but I'd like to play the cowbell. I've got plenty of cowbells," said Brian Fronzaglia, Band Director.
The alumni band will perform on September 21st at the half-time show at the Missouri Southern football game. To view the MSSU Alumni Band Facebook page, click here.
