Parade season already! Denny International Middle School principal Jeff Clark sends news (and the photo) from the marching Dolphins’ big event today:

I am very pleased to share that the Denny All Star Band did a great job marching in the Tacoma Junior Daffodil Parade today! Our All Star Band includes students from our local elementary schools who have been a part of our Spring Break Music Camp with Mr. Pimpleton and Mr. Morales. Congratulations to the students and a special thank you to all of the volunteers who have helped this week!

1:34 PM P.S. Turns out – some of those musicians were headed here to the Gathering of Neighbors (in the Sealth/Denny Galleria), where we’ve been since mid-morning, for an encore performance. We recorded part of it on video and we’ll add that here later. Here’s the video:


  1. What an amazing week!! Thank you, THANK YOU to Mr. Pimpleton and all of the volunteer staff for making this week an experience to cherish! Our 4th grader is so pumped about band and so proud of herself! This camp allowed her to even participate in a drumline aside from learning and playing hip and fun music! THANK YOU!!! She can’t stop smiling…SHE’S SO EXCITED! ;-)

  2. Amen to that! This is a group of kids I WANT my child to hang around with. Don’t forget. They’re doing it again this summer.

  3. Here is the coverage from the Tacoma News Tribune where Drum Major Gavin was half of the front page of the South Sound section of the paper!! It’s a smaller picture online, but a GIANT picture in the paper!
