About Us

Since its establishment in 1958, the Robert E. Lee High School Band has been grounded in tradition and excellence. The band is under the direction of Mr. Samuel Labordus, Mr. Neil Hicks, and Mr. Jordan Hayes, and Percussion director Mr. Darriel Montgomery.  The Guard is under the direction of Mr. Chris Falsetta. The REL Band Area Cluster includes Hubbard Middle School, Moore MST Magnet Middle School, and Hogg Middle School.

The Robert E. Lee High School Band program is divided into several groups: Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Winds, Concert Band, Jazz Band I and II, Percussion Ensemble, Drumline, Color Guard and Winter Guard. You can read more about these groups by selecting them from the Ensembles Menu.

In the Fall, all of the various parts of the REL Band combine to create “The Pride of Robert E. Lee”, which performs at all varsity football games, marching contests and various community events.
