The Alpena Wildcat Marching Band, consisting of more than 125 members under the direction of Michael Gozzard, is recognized for its high level of quality in musical performance and entertainment. All 125-plus members are placed into two separate ensembles during the school day and only meet as an entire marching band on game day. The band’s goal is to make Wildcat Stadium the toughest place to play in the Big North Conference by providing energy, enthusiasm, and school spirit throughout each home game. Above is a photo from the first full band rehearsal at the stadium.
