The Northern Illinois Huskie Marching Band, under the direction of Regiment alumnus Tom Bough, is set to do a special performance at the Phantom Regiment’s fourth annual Fall Marching Band Festival, to be held at 5 p.m. today at Harlem High School in Machesney Park, Ill.

“The Huskie Marching Band is always eager to perform, be it for the enthusiastic fans in Huskie Stadium or for the hard-working and talented high school band members that perform and compete every weekend during the fall around the state of Illinois,” Mr. Bough said. “Our members love music, love performing, and especially love sharing the proud traditions of the Huskie Marching Band with our audience.”
