What uniform parts does my student need to provide for each performance?
Items your student is responsible for bringing to and wearing in each show include: shako or beret if they need one; a Walton band, black dri-fit shirt; athletic shorts to be worn under their bibbers; plain black crew or knee-high socks; marching shoes; gloves if needed; wristbands if needed; hair supplies such as gel, bobby pins, etc. (note that all exposed nail polish and jewelry must be removed).
Everything students are bringing with them should be placed in a garment bag (Walton Band bags are available for purchase, but any standard garment bag will work) that is clearly labeled with their name and section. Garment bags should be delivered to the band room on your student’s way into school if they are not going home between school and a show.

Wondering what a shako, gauntlet, or plume is?

It takes many hands to ensure that our students and their uniforms will look their best for each performance. The uniform crew asks for volunteers to help get students into the proper uniform before each show and for help getting all the school-owned uniform pieces back in order after each show. Several times throughout the season we also need help washing the uniforms. This volunteer slot can be done at home around your schedule. Please visit our volunteer signup page to see a list of all current band volunteer needs.
