The Knox Redskin Brigade performed well at the Concord Marching Band Invitational this past weekend.

The band placed first in marching and second overall in the Class C competition.

This year’s Brigade features 82 members – 50 of which play woodwind instruments and 15 students in the percussion section. The 2013 show features various Hitchcock themes including “Psycho,” “The Birds,” “North by Northwest,” and “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.”

They were State Champion Runner-up in 2000, 2002 and 2003 in Class D. The Redskin Brigade was also the Bands of America Indiana Regional Class A Champions in 2005.
