Gilbert High School football team takes on Campo Verde at 7 p.m. and the momentum is building around the upcoming football season.

The Gilbert Tiger Pride Marching Band is coming off a fourth place finish at the 2016 state championships.

In October, they're hosting the Gilbert Marching Invitational, where 30 bands are coming together at Tiger Stadium to perform. Around 2,500 people are expected to attend.

And in November, they're traveling to Hawaii to march in the Waikiki Holiday Parade.

He's also highly sought after as a music arranger, drill designer and show consultant for various marching bands around Phoenix.
