The Findlay Trojan Marching Band’s 2015 season may have just ended, but a new development for the 2016 season has just begun. Next year, the marching band will receive completely new uniforms. To the general public, that might not seem like a big deal but to band fans it is a huge change. The current uniform is blue suspender pants, a white top with large shoulder pads, a blue and gold cape, sash, and gauntlets. The helmets are hardhat style with a metallic triangle and a large, Trojan style plume that most other bands don’t have. Good news, band kids; the new uniforms don’t have capes, gauntlets, or oddly shaped plumes. They do, however, zip up the back. The new uniforms feature adjustable black suspender pants, and a blue top with smaller shoulder pads and gold stripes that run along the front. The helmet is a regular marching hat style with a 14inch, upright, blue and white plume.
For those of you who don’t know the real struggle of the current marching band uniforms, here’s a video to show just how real that struggle is.
