They will join marching bands from across the country in the halftime show finale of this major college bowl game.

Under the direction of Matt Fields, the Demopolis High School marching band will travel to Orlando where they will rehearse with the mass band and learn from nationally acclaimed adjudicators. In their free time, they will take in the sights of Orlando.

Matt Fields has been teaching for 10 years and will be personally leading the Demopolis High School group of Demopolis students to Orlando. The trip to the Russell Athletic Bowl is the first time in school history that the marching band has participated in a collegiate bowl game performance. In addition to performing inj the Russell Athletic Bowl, the Demopolis High School band will also be marching in the Macy's Holiday Parade at Universal Studios in Orlando.
