Any marching band is made up of all kinds of instruments. Some of these instruments are familiar and other are slightly different. Take the saxophone for instance. There are several variations of this instrument. This week’s band member, Jeremy Bolton, has played several of them.
Bolton started out playing the Alto saxophone in sixth grade. One year later, he started playing the Tenor Saxophone and has been playing it ever since. It was Jeremy’s love for music that caused him to join the band in the first place. It’s the excitement that keeps him there now.
”Walking on the field at any competition or in front of our home crowd and hearing them cheer for us,” Bolton says about what excites him most about marching band.
Of course, Jeremy was a part of the state champions last year.
”It was the best feeling to know that coming back from 2nd place two years ago, focusing so hard on the show and sacrificing countless hours paid off,” Bolton said. “Even better to experience it with those who I’m the closest to.”
Besides marching band, Bolton is also a member of National Honor Society, Beta Club and he’s on the North Lamar varsity soccer squad. During the little free time he has, Jeremy likes to ride his motorcycle, go rock crawling and surf behind the boat.
”I enjoy anything with a motor.”
After graduation, the senior is planning to go into the Army for an intelligence job. He will do that for two years and then he hopes to join the FBI and go into counterterrorism.
Let’s get to know Bolton a little more.
