EATON — On July 16, the Eaton High School Marching Eagles began a four-day band camp week, practicing from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. This year, the marching band, under the direction of Paul Bingle, will be challenging itself with a much more difficult halftime show entitled “Moonwalk.”
The music selection will include a tribute to Michael Jackson with songs such as “Beat It,” “Billie Jean,” and “Thriller.” Not only is the music much more difficult to learn, the bad has added a brand new style of marching for the Marching Eagles this year. A much more complicated drill, more visual effects, and of course added equipment from the Colorguard, including rifles and sabers.
There are several soloists who will be highlighted this year as well. The students have put in several hours already learning this complicated show and hope that the community can appreciate their hard work. The new incoming freshman Class of 2022 stepped it up, pushed themselves, and fit right in. With a little over 100 members now, which includes Field Commanders Abby Towe, Alisha Raider, Hunter Cuyler and Colorguard Captain Tatum Durban, the Marching Eagles are ready to rock. Check them out this season under the lights at the Friday night football games.
