Nease’s marching band is a competitive 150-piece marching band that traverses the state of Florida to compete in the Florida Marching Band Coalition circuit of competitions. The marching band consists of brass instruments, including: the trumpet, mellophone, trombone, baritone, and tuba; woodwind instruments, including: clarinets, saxophones, and flutes; percussion, including the front ensemble and marching battery and our colorguard members. There are staff members hired by the band director to work and teach the members of the band, and within the band there is a system of student leadership. There are leaders of each section, each overall group of instruments, and the whole band, as well as a conductor position called the drum major, which is the top position of the band. As of the 2014 season, Nease is a two-time Grand Champion of circuit competitions  (2013 (1), 2014 (1)) and three-time State Finalist (2011, 2013, 2014). Nease’s first experience with Grand Championship came in 2013 with their show “Desert Winds”, and again in 2014 with their show “Angels Amoung Us”. Their three State Finals performances include their 2011 production, “A Mad, Mad World”, along with “Desert Winds” and “Angels Amoung Us”.
