BTDub’s marching band doing their thang at the home game against Bishop Kelly High School on October 15, 2010.

Shot at the 32nd Annual Tournament of Bands on November 8th, 2008 at the Kamehameha School’s Kunuiakea Athletic Complex in Honolulu, Hawaii. Here’s an excerpt from that night’s program: The Kamehameha Schools “Warrior” Band and Color Guard has performed worldwide to critical acclaim and recognition. Comprised of over 150 students in grades 9-12, the band is under the direction of Mr. John R. Riggle and Assistant Director Mr. Aristotle Santa Cruz. National and international performances have included the 100th Anniversary Tournament of Roses Parade; 1984 Fiesta Bowl Parade in Arizona; 1982 Portland Rose Fesitval Parade; 1991 Orange Bowl Parade; 1994 London New Years Day Parade; and President Clinton’s 1993 Inaugural Parade in Washington DC In the closing of the year 1999 and opening of the year of 2000, the Kamehameha “Warrior” Band and Color Guard had the distinct honor of being selected as the only high school band in Hawaii, as well as the United States, to receive an invitation from the Principality of Monaco to perform at the Royal Palace of Monaco. Another milestone for the state of Hawaii occurred in June 2006, as the Kamehameha Schools “Warrior” Band & Color Guard became the first band from Hawaii to tour and perform in China. The Kamehameha “Warrior” Band, by government invitation, performed in Beijing, Xian, Shijazhuang, and Shanghai. Repertoire: “African Thunder” Movement 1. “Africa” Movement 2. “This Land” Movement 3. “Stampede” Movement 4. “Circle of Life/Finale”
