The DGN Bands are proud to announce the Tenth Annual performance of the TROJAN ALUMNI BAND!
We will once again be forming an Alumni Band to perform with the TROJAN Marching Band during the Homecoming football game on September 27th, 2013. We are trying to find as many alumni as possible to participate in what is always a really fun and exciting event. We are e-mailing this invite and information to alums who have expressed interested in the Alumni Band in the past or performed with us in years past. We also have a Facebook in the DGN Alumni Band - Official Site group. This group was re-organized by Facebook about a year ago, so search for it and re-join us if you aren't already a member! If you know of someone who would be interested in this event, use one of the links above to spread the word (email, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook). Or go to Facebook to invite them to join the Alumni Band group!!
While you will hopefully recognize the same energy, spirit and musicianship in this year's version of the Trojan Marching Band that you remember from YOUR days at North, there have also been a number of changes on our campus in recent years. The most noticeable will certainly be the new pedestrian-way where Prince Street USED to be, along side of our new synthetic turf field and a new synthetic practice field. Gone are the days of performances on a muddy uneven field. This new surface looks great and is a pleasure to march on!
We are accepting credit card and PayPal payments again this year. This, along with using this great Eventbrite registration site have added some slight fees to your registration. We hope the convenience of these tools outweighs the increased expense. Checks can also still be used for payment. Click on the "Show other payment options" link during checkout to get the mailing address and details.
When registering, ALL PARTICIPANTS must register for the "Registration Fee" Ticket. All NEW PARTICIPANTS must also register for the "Sweatshirt Order" Ticket to order the required uniform sweatshirt. Of course anyone can order additional sweatshirts.
We're looking forward to seeing you on September 27th!

The DGN Trojan Alumni Band is open to all alumni of the North High School or Downers Grove High School Bands. The Alumni Band performs annually at the Homecoming Football game and has had alumns representing each of the past six decades - and of course many recent graduates!
