Music of the Knight
The SHS Blue Knights Marching Band’s Music of the Knight is in its 30th year. For the past three decades, MOTK has been an event that brings pride and recognition to the BKMB, Southington High School, and the Southington Community as a whole. In addition, it is the BKMB’s largest fundraiser because of the number of bands that want to participate, including college. The USBands judges want to come to MOTK because we take such good care of them. The visiting bands sign up quickly when our event becomes available, and some have to sit on waiting lists. All the pride, recognition, and fundraising opportunities would not have been possible over the last 30 years without parent volunteers helping make MOTK a success. It is imperative that our current Band Backer families carry on the tradition of excellence and volunteer. Without sufficient volunteers, our quality of service will suffer, and visitors, judges, and bands will not want to return to MOTK. Therefore, someone from every student’s family is required to volunteer. We cannot put on MOTK without everyone’s help. Gatekeepers, Parking, and Concessions have the biggest need for volunteers. Please give your time so that your student’s MOTK will be as successful as the past 29 years have been.
Thank you for your support of BKMB
