Basketball Band

The “Screamin’ Demons” is the name of our indoor pep band that provides entertainment for basketball games and other indoor sporting events. All members of the high school band are required to participate in a limited number of performances with the Screamin’ Demons during the winter and spring months. The band is divided into two groups with the goal being to have two smaller bands that are equal in size and musical ability. One will simply be called Group 1 and the other Group 2.

Attendance Policy 
Our general attendance policy is outlined in the DHS Band Guidelines Handbook.  However, with a band of this nature, some exceptions are necessary.

  • You are expected to attend all rehearsals and performances in their entireties that are scheduled.
  • If you have a legitimate conflict (family emergency, etc.) you may receive an excused absence if you:
    • Notify Mr. Haas well in advance (note the day of) of the evening in person and in writing.
    • Secure a student of equal musical ability to cover your part for you (approved by Mr. Haas)
    • You must still make up the absence by being at another groups event.
  • There are exceptions to every rule.  Because of this, every situation will be evaluated on an individual basis.  Please remember that only Mr. Haas approves those exceptions.
  • Students must report to the bandroom at the scheduled report time.  Students arriving late may lose free time privileges during the game.

Screamin’ Demon Uniform
Students will be expected to wear their Red Band Polo Shirt unless told otherwise by Mr. Haas.

General Info
Admission to all sporting events that you are playing in will be free.  You must be wearing the appropriate attire and have your instrument to expect to be allowed in free.  A break will be given if possible at some point during the night.  Be sure to bring extra spending money if you plan on purchasing a snack from the concession stand.

Bonus Points
Bonus points will be given to students who play at games they are not assigned to play.
