THIELLS, N.Y. - It takes commitment and dedication to be a part of the hard-working North Rockland High marching band.
But the payoff can be great, as Drum Major Sal Castronovo told Daily Voice: "It's one of the best feelings you can have" to be a part of a group like this.
The Red Raider Marching band is a constant presence at home sporting events - as well as at regional competitions and community events - keeping the crowd pumped and the atmosphere alive for the home fans.
