The "TROJAN" Marching Band averages 200 instrumentalists and color guard. Showcasing new uniforms purchased in 2006, the band performs at four or five home football games each year, the homecoming parade and assembly, the Band-O-Rama concert, home and away play-off games, and the Downers Grove Holiday and Memorial Day Parades. In March of 1996 the band traveled to Orlando, Florida, where they performed at Walt Disney World (Main Street parade) and Universal Studios (Studio Lot parade). In April of 1998 the Band was invited to Washington DC, to perform on the steps of the United States Capitol. The band performed both the Canadian and United States National Anthems at Comiskey Park on Sunday, April 26, 1998. The 1999-2000 Marching Band was invited to perform in the Dublin, Ireland St. Patrick's Day Parade as well as the Limerick, Ireland International Marching Band Festival in March of 2000. The "TROJAN" Marching Band prides itself on it's high-energy approach to music, musicianship, sportsmanship, and teamwork. The Band performs original arrangements by their directors, commissions, and the finest published literature. The Pre-Game show consists of the Fast Entry, DGN Fanfare, North High School Song (with Block "N" Drill), the National Anthem, and special music for the kick-off. Half-time shows that change from week-to-week keep the "TROJAN" fans engaged and entertained. The Band plays many tunes in the stands to keep the crowd involved, and takes pride in the fact that they "make some noise" (vocally) ... enough so to distract the other team. Each home football game concludes with the playing and singing of the North High Alma Mater with the football team standing within the ranks of the band. Downers Grove North has not traditionally competed.
