Phillipsburg High School band to perform at Orange Bowl

HANOVER TWP., Pa. - Students from New Jersey will be the only high school band playing at the Orange Bowl this year.

69 News caught up with the Phillipsburg High School band at Lehigh Valley International Airport Wednesday morning as they were taking off for Miami.

The band will perform for five minutes before the game and during halftime as well with singer Andy Grammer and "Fun" lead vocalist Nate Ruess.

The Phillipsburg High School band director says there will be a lot of 'big stage' moments for the students to take in.

"Getting to see a game of this magnitude, getting to be in the same stadium and experience both great college bands between Miami and Wisconsin, and being part of the game day logistics," said band director Kyle Fleming.

The band found out about the opportunity to play at the Orange Bowl a year ago and has been fundraising ever since. The band director says community contributions made the trip possible.
