IRONTON, OH (WOWK) – A fun Friday night in Ironton for the big Ironton-Wheelersburg football matchup and the Ironton High School Million Dollar Marching Band joined 13 News for a live appearance.
The band has a rich history as a high energy group of performers playing not only at games but in area parades and other events.
From the band’s website – this is how the band got their nickname:
The band was dubbed “The Million Dollar Band”; by local radio broadcaster Clint McElroy, Sr. in the mid-50’s when, as he provided the play-by-play calling at a football game, took notice of the band’s new uniforms and instruments, claiming that they looked like a million dollars.Ironton HS Band Website
The band is led by Director Jeff Sanders.
