Congratulations to the students, staff and parents of the 2016 Deer Lakes High School Marching Band for their performance at the annual PIMBA Championships held on Saturday, October 29th at Moon Area HS in Moon Township, PA. It was a perfect night in western Pennsylvania for marching band and the students took advantage of it on their way to being named the 2016 PIMBA Class AA State Champion!
A message from the Director:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved with making our 2016 program "MI-6: The 007 Archives" a championship show! There are countless roles and responsibilities that go into a successful program, and I am truly grateful to have students, staff and boosters willing to go the extra mile to fill those needs! I honestly believe that the Deer Lakes Marching Band has, yet again, taken another step forward, and it's because of the support of the staff and parents, but mostly the hard work and dedication of the students, that makes it possible. Thank you all for being a part of the Deer Lakes Band Programs!

The Deer Lakes Marching Band took part in one of Pittsburgh's most historical sporting events ever on Wednesday, June 15th, 2016 as they partnered with the Pittsburgh Penguins in celebration of the 2016 Stanley Cup Championship at the Stanley Cup Championship Victory Parade held in downtown Pittsburgh. Over 400,000 spectators were there to witness the Pittsburgh Penguins hoist the cup in celebration of their victory over the San Jose Sharks while students and alumni from Deer Lakes marched and performed for a sea of black and gold. This marks the second time Deer Lakes has participated in a Stanley Cup Victory Parade after their performance in the 2009 Stanley Cup Championship Parade!
