• Welcome to the GLEN RIDGE MARCHING BAND Page!
     
    The above schedule is a list of opportunities. Opportunities for each GRMB member to grow as a performer and grow as a person. The performances listed are opportunities for the band to share its hard work with the greater Glen Ridge community and the general public. Dr. Gage and the GRMB Staff look forward to watching this year's performers add their own unique chapter to the long, proud history of the Glen Ridge Marching Band.
