They didn’t miss a beat … literally. It takes more than intermittent showers and a downpour to dampen spirits of the Golden Falcons.

Jefferson Township High School’s marching band hosted the North Jersey/New York Metro Region Tournament of Bands Saturday evening, Sept. 15, on the school’s home turf.

The Golden Falcons, a 1-A division band, weathered the worst of the evening’s elements, playing during a downpour that turned the bleachers into a sea of colorful umbrellas. As host, the high school marching band was not part of the night’s competition but received scores from the judges.

Township residents can enjoy the Golden Falcons 2019 presentation – Bildingsroman – at Falcons football games.
