G-Force

The heartbeat of the GHS Marching Buccaneer Band, the GHS Drumline (a.k.a. ‘G-Force’) is a vital part of the band’s success.

Our members participate in our marching and concert bands, including a few in our ‘Jazz Fusion’ ensemble. Our students will be expanding their knowledge in general percussion as well as mallet percussion and ensemble literature.

Past members of our drumline have been members of the All-County Concert and Jazz Bands and we have even had some representing our school in the FBA All-State Band.

In 2008, our drumline was featured in the ‘Bounce Around The Bay’ event during the Women’s NCAA Final Four Tournament in Tampa in April. In 2010, our drumline received a rating of Superior at the Lion’s Pride Invitational, won their block of the first annual Lion’s Pride Drum-Off and placed a close second in the finals of that event.
