Band Attire

The band attire is as follows:

Marching Band

Band T-Shirt – The South River band T shirt is to be worn under the marching uniform jacket and at special events. A shirt is provided free of charge to all first year band students. Additional/replacement T shirts can be purchased for $15.00.

Dinkles (white marching shoes) – Your first pair of marching band shoes will be provided. Students who have lost their shoes will need to purchase a new pair of Dinkles ($30). Students are expected to keep their Dinkles cleaned and polished.

White socks – White socks can be purchased at local stores. Marching band socks must be crew length or higher (no ankle socks!) and must be plain white with no logos or designs.

Uniform jacket, bibs, hat and plume – The uniform jackets, bibs, hats and plumes are purchased by the Boosters and are loaned to band students for marching band season. The cost and maintenance of the uniform is covered by the activity fees. Each student has a unique jacket, bibs and hat assigned to them for the entire season. The jacket, hat and plume are stored at the school and distributed to students for performances.  These pieces are then collected after the show and stored at the school.

Students must take their bibs home and wash them between performances. Students who lose their bibs will be charged a fee of $60 for replacement.

Concert Band

Students in the Concert Band Performance Group will be fitted for concert attire that is purchased through the activity fees ($200 per year).

Female Students

The women’s concert attire is a black, full length dress, black hose and black dress shoes. The black dress will be provided. The hose and shoes must be purchased at local stores. Students are responsible for altering the length of the dress. DO NOT have the bottom of the dress cut during the alteration so that it can be let out for the next student who needs to use it.

Male Students

The men’s concert attire is a black vest, a long sleeved white tuxedo shirt, black tuxedo pants, black socks and black dress shoes. The black vest and the bowtie will be provided. The tuxedo shirt, pants, socks and shoes must be purchased at local stores. The black socks must be crew length or higher (no ankle socks!).
