Busy Bee Band 
& Honeybees
in 59th Annual 
Toyota Gator Bowl

 

Wednesday, December 31, 2003

Following a continental breakfast at the Holiday Inn, the group returned to Terry Parker High School for their first rehearsal with other participating high school groups in preparation for the mass band halftime performance.  Ken Dye, band director at the University of Notre Dame, directed the 1500-member group in his arrangement of a Beach Boys Medley and "Hey, Hey Baby".

Following practice, the group ate lunch at Parker High and quickly traveled to downtown Jacksonville for the Winn-Dixie Gator Bowl Parade that was televised regionally on the Sunshine Network.  The group was greeted by several thousand Mountaineer fans who loudly supported the home state group.  WDTV Channel 5 also met up with the group for a taping for the local news.

Wednesday evening, the band joined the other participating high school organizations for an awards ceremony and banquet hosted by Bowl Games of America at the Prime E. Osburn Convention Center in downtown Jacksonville.  The Busy Bee Band & Honeybees received awards for 3rd place Field Show, 4th place parade and received awards for Best Overall Music and Best Overall Auxiliary.  Following the awards and dinner, Bowl Games provided entertainment for a celebration of the New Year.
