Big Red Band is a name that means a lot to people around the Parkersburg area. Especially those touched by the long red line.

Alumni from the past came back in town to share lots of great memories, celebrate changes and showcase those big improvements over the past 90 years.

One big change.. the inclusion of women.

"Women weren't allowed in until back in the 70's," said Big Red Band Director, Dan White.

So, now the first all girls snare line at PHS is definitely making history.

Not only is it just giving the members confidence, it is definitely making the alumni proud and everyone is happy to be a part of the long red line... Even if they haven't graduated yet.

"I just think it's really nice that we can come in hear and make the old alumni proud," says sophomore Karenna Patterson.
