With two competitions under their belt, the Montevallo Marching Troubadours will head to their last competition this Saturday at the Smith Lake Invitational.

“We’ve had a great season,” band director, James Rogers said. “The Troubadours have worked really hard and represented Montevallo very well.”

The Troubadours have competed in two competitions so far this season.

They visited Weaver, Alabama for the “Dixie Jubilee Jam”, Saturday, Sept. 24.  The group earned all superior ratings and best in class majorettes.

“It feels great to receive all superior ratings,” drum major Nate Pepper said. “It’s our main goal.  Receiving a lot of Best in Class awards is great, but at the end of the day, superior ratings is the main goal.”

Their second competition was the Mud Creek Marching Festival in Hanceville, Alabama.  There the Troubadours also earned all superior ratings and Best in Class majorettes.

“It feels like all our hard work is finally paying off,” junior Mckenley Brantley said.

This year, the show includes music from the eighties sensation, Chicago.  Songs performed include Make Me Smile, I’m A Man, and 25 or 6 to 4.
