'The Swarm' manufactures a season of triumphs
SEBs compact band outscores larger rivals
110311 SEB SWARM 04
The Swarm's trumpet section moves frenetically on the field as they perform their show at last Friday's football game at Southeast Bulloch High.
In competition after competition, the Southeast Bulloch High Swarm, the Brooklet-based marching band that fields 62 members in factory work clothes, has outscored spit-and-polish bands with twice as many marchers just in their horn sections. Between playing Friday nights at every Yellow Jackets football game and marching in one Monday parade, the Swarm spent four Saturdays in October drilling and building through the band festival competition season around southeast Georgia. The band will cap the season Saturday with the Georgia Marching Band Series Finals at Jeff Davis High School in Hazlehurst.
