Bowie Sudler Shield Concert

Tuesday, members of the Bailey Band attended the Bowie Sudler Shield Concert. What an incredible honor for the Bowie Band. Their hard work and dedication is legendary and we are so lucky to be a part of the Bowie family. The concert was amazing, and I know our kids felt privileged to be in attendance.


We had our Clarinet Ensemble perform at the concert for some pre-concert music. We are beyond proud of these girls. They have been working so hard on this difficult ensemble and performed so wonderfully. Here’s a recording of their performance. Great job Thea, Olivia, Avery, and Jamie!! We are so proud of you!

7th and 8th grade band concert info

Hi Everyone!

This is just a reminder about the concert at Burger Center on Thursday May 8th. Students will enter from the 290 side through the red doors.
The concert begins at 7:00pm, but all Wind Ensemble, Wind Symphony, and Symphony Band members are required to be there by 6:15 and we will warm up promptly at 6:30. They need to be in full uniform and bring their wire music stand. Please leave instrument cases in the car.
We are excited to celebrate the culmination of a great year!

Concert and rehearsal info for Beginning Band

Hi Beginning Band Parents!

Your child should have brought home a neon yellow information sheet about our upcoming rehearsals for the concert.
Next Wednesday April 30th and Tuesday May 6th, we will have after school rehearsal from 3:40-4:30 in our cafeteria. This is the only chance for the kids to hear the music put together with all the instruments, so it is important that everyone be there.
The concert is on the Thursday May 8th at Burger Center. It starts at 7:00, but beginners are asked to be there by 6:05 and ready to warm up at 6:15 pm. 
They are to wear nice dressy clothes as they did last time and bring their wire music stand.
Can’t wait for you all to hear how much they have improved since December!!

Mattress Sale coming soon!!!

Hello Bailey Band Community!!


The Bailey Band is having our first ever mattress sale on October 26th at Bailey MS from 10am-5pm. These are quality name brand beds (complete with memory foam, pillow-tops, and all the extras!). The beds are 30-60% off because the company doesn’t have the overhead of a store front. Profit goes to the Bailey Band! We will set up the beds at Bailey in the band hall or cafeteria just like a bed store. There will be knowledgeable bed sales people here to help you and answer questions. They will deliver your new bed and pick up your old bed within a couple weeks of the 26th. The flyer attached also has a coupon for $50 off a bed set. You can also go to our facebook page for more information:!/events/424943567623688/

Please help us spread the word and invite friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers and feel free to post this flyer. Thank you all as always for your support! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at:
