Townie Pride is a big thing in the little city of East Providence; however the members of the East Providence High School Townie Marching Band show their pride almost every Friday, from the time school starts until Thanksgiving Day. No matter if it is raining, snowing, or blazing hot out, the Townie Marching Band is in the stands yelling cheers, dancing around, or playing some famous and well known pieces, in support of the football team. It seems that the Townie Marching Band and the Crimsonette Flag Corps are the only reason the fans come and watch. Both groups keep the crowds roaring and keep their spirits up. Not only is the Townie Marching Band the most awesometastic band ever, they are also well known for being the BEST band around. They make other bands look like a harmonica compared to them. You could almost say that they are the tuba marching band. They have had plenty of corruption in their band, but that never tore them apart. The band is like big family and they have to stick together to overcome whatever challenges are in their way. When the Townie Marching Band walks onto the field, the eyes of the audience open wide. With the festive red and white uniforms, the southern band director, and the wacky members of the band, you might take a guess that there is never a dull or boring moment. The Townie Marching Band is one of the best things that have happened to East Providence and hopefully it will be there for many years to come.
