It’s March 4 and that means it is National Marching Arts Day. Where would #NEMCC be without the Showband from Tigerland? From blistering hot days at band camp in July and August to the freezing cold of a Christmas parade, the Showband from Tigerland serves as one of the college’s biggest organizations and as a social ambassador for Northeast. Numbering nearly 300 strong, the Northeast marching band performs its pre-game and halftime shows at every Northeast home football game, at Meet the Tigers and all pep rallies as well as Northeast NOW recruitment events plus many more functions throughout the year. While marching season runs from the hot July sun to the December cold, members of Showband from Tigerland never slow down. Members can be seen in the NEMCC Symphonic Band, the NEMCC Concert Band, the NEMCC Jazz Band, as members of the Pom Squad, as members of the Indoor Winter Guard, as members of the pep band for basketball games or lending their talents to other Fine Art activities like staring in the NEMCC theatre’s rendition of “The Pirates of Penzance,” during the spring semester. Marching band alumni have gone on to four-year colleges and universities using the work ethic the Showband from Tigerland instilled into them and taken that passion and desire into their professional careers as pillars of their communities. To hear more about what all the Showband from Tigerland has been up to lately, tune into the March 17 TigerTalk Podcast as host Will Kollmeyer has an in-depth conversation with NEMCC Director of Bands Bryan Mitchell. #movingforward (at Northeast Mississippi Community College)
