Friday marks the first time the band will perform on Inauguration Day as they march in the Third Division.
"To walk down Pennsylvania Avenue and be a part of that celebration, that's what America is all about," said band instructor Kevin Pollack. "No matter what your political leanings are, you're celebrating a change in power and a new president and that's what we do in this country."
