The Jacksonville State Marching Southerners have routinely wowed band fans both in Alabama and across the country each season. Their corps style shows with over 400 marchers is a sight to be seen.
The band has released their 2017 show concept titled "Angels Among Us".
From the release:"Angels are not confined to the realm of the unknown. They are everywhere, right here among us. In 2017, the Marching Southerners reflect on those people who appear in our lives when we need them the most. While some may no longer be with us, they continue to inspire us, comfort us, and give us hope. These Earth angels lift us up on their wings with every smile, warm memory, and act of kindness.
They remind us that miracles happen every day…if we only choose to see them."

“Fly to Paradise” by Eric Whitacre
“Resplendent Glory” by Rossano Galante
“Ready for a Miracle” by Bunny Hull and Art Reynolds
“Angel” by Sarah McLachlan
“Joyride” by Michael Markowski
