A personal message from Rick Veingrad
President of Band of the Hour Alumni Association
In celebrating the upcoming 85th year of the Band of the Hour anniversary and the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Mirage Bowl that was held in Japan , I would like to personally invite you to a fantastic Alumni Weekend starting Thursday November 1st thru 3rd. Reunion Alumni Band events include a meet and mingle dinner at Monty's in Coconut Grove on Thursday November 1st. On Friday evening, we have the Hall of Fame and we will be joining the Frost Band of the Hour for the Homecoming Parade. On Saturday at the game, we will be playing on the field with the Frost Band at Hard Rock stadium. Whether you still play or not, I'd like to see you join us in the biggest Alumni Band reunion event ever!
