Here at Lake Brantley we have a proud tradition of excellence both on field and on stage. Our marching attire is a patriot style uniform that consists of a jacket, bibbers (pants), and a three cornered hat. Each year the students are loaned the uniform and a heavy duty garment bag for a set amount of time.
This year, uniforms distribution day is August 14th. Your child will choose their appointment time to arrive at the band room to pick up their items.
In addition to the loaned items, band members also need to purchase socks, gloves, shoes, and a concert uniform. You can find more information about what is required in the the Uniform Newsletter. The Patriot's Closet is an affordable option for gently used items that have been donated from the previous year. The small shop is run by our volunteers and is open from 9:00am to 12:00pm on the last Friday of band camp.
Don’t forget to read the annual Uniform News & Information newsletter. It is jammed packed with everything you need to know about the uniform.
If you have any questions during the year, please do not hesitate to call our committee chair Laurie Bedell/Jessica Rosenblatt at 407-746-3460 (Band Room).
The casual uniform consist of a blue polo shirt with band logo and either black jeans or tuxedo pants depending on the event. Students are sized for their polo shirts during uniform distribution and will purchase the shirt at that time. These shirts only need to be purchased once unless the size changes or is lost.
The marching uniform is a patriot style uniform with jacket, bibbers (pants), and a three cornered hat. The hat, jacket, bibbers, shoe buckles and garment bag are loaned to the students.

The concert uniform consists of black tuxedo pants with a black banded-collar tux shirt and a silver button cover. The students are responsible for wearing close-toed black dress shoes (or Bando marching shoes without the shoe buckles from marching season) with black socks. Payment for the concert attire is collected during uniform distribution day.
