11 area bands perform variety of shows at Reed City’s marching band festivalREED CITY – Area bands that performed at the marching band festival in Reed City on Wednesday did more than play a few songs. They put on a show. Eleven bands within the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association’s district No. 1 played at Reed City High School; the last time the school hosted a marching festival was 2004. “There’s a lot of energy and a lot of variety, which is great for all the spectators,” said RCHS band director John Szczerowski.
