Homecoming and the Alumni Band


Homecoming is about bringing alumni back to reconnect with the school. Traditionally, well over 100 alumni play with the Riverside Regiment every year during halftime of the football game. Homecoming in 2021 is Friday, September 24! The song list is: Free Ride, Macho Man and Hang on Sloopy.

Riverside Alumni Band

The Riverside Alumni Band performs with the Riverside Regiment every Homecoming. We invite anybody who has ever played an instrument for the Beavers, ever led one of the bands over the years, or may have a kid in the district and played an instrument in your high school band.

Alumni Band through the generations

The Vaccariellos and Lindroses pose for their annual family photo after halftime.

We rehearsed on the side of the building starting at 5:00 p.m. We don't have to move once we were in formation on the field.

We also limit our playlist for the performance in order for alumni to be familiar with the tunes.

In the future, if you need an instrument, music or are a percussionist, text Mike Vaccariello at (440) 479-2850 or email at mjv111@aol.com.
