Since first taking the field in 1967, the Claiborne Blue Battalion Marching Band has become a staple at Friday night football games and Saturday band competitions around the East Tennessee area. The Blue Battalion marching band is constantly on the forefront of exceptional musical ability and premier drill design. In recent years the band has consistently earned superior ratings at regional marching competitions as well as made four consecutive appearances at the Tennessee State Division II Marching Championships. More importantly, the Blue Battalion has provided ample opportunities for its members to earn college scholarships, no matter their chosen field of study!
