Northside band wins state title
The Royal Ambassador Marching Band from Northside Christian School won another state championship at the Florida Marching Band Championships Nov. 23 at Tropicana Field. It's the school's second state band championship in two years and its fourth in the past eight years. The band, competing in the Class 1A division, performed a show with a 1920s theme that featured several elements not usually found in marching bands: a banjo, a jazz rhythm section and a violin solo played by a student dressed as Charlie Chaplin. The St. Petersburg K-12 school has about 600 students.
