The Hart High School Band and Flag Team will host 'Rampage' on Nov. 1. This year will mark their 25th year hosting the event.

Hart Regiment, Hart High School's award-winning marching band and color guard, will host its 25th Annual Hart Rampage Marching Band Field Show Tournament on Nov. 1 at College of the Canyons.

Thirty-two bands including all six William S. Hart District high schools will participate in the event from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Cougar Stadium, 26455 Rockwell Canyon Rd. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students, and free for children under 5. Tickets will be sold at the.

Rampage is one of the oldest and most prestigious marching band competitions in California.

"It's hard to believe we are celebrating Rampage's 25th anniversary," said Anthony Bailey, Hart band director, who has been involved with nine Rampage competitions. "This competition has grown to become one of the most important marching band competitions in the state."

The event will include its signature feature - the largest mass drum-line in Southern California featuring drummers from all the day's performing bands followed by the awards ceremony.

"We have a few surprises honoring past Rampage competitions," said Heather Holloway, co-chair of Rampage 2008. "If you haven't been to a marching band competition, it's a fun way to spend the day. You'll gain insight into the world of marching bands."

Other participating high schools include: Lompoc, Atascadero, Manual Arts, Fairfax, Nordhoff, Monrovia, Rosamond, Lancaster, San Pedro, Simi Valley, Birmingham, Palmdale, Oxnard, West, Littlerock, Centennial, Buena, Granada Hills Charter, Bakersfield, John Burroughs, El Camino Real, Liberty, South, Quartz Hill, Frontier, and La Canada. Rampage will also include a performance by Pasadena City College's marching band.

Performance times for local schools are: Valencia 3:30 p.m., Canyon 4:30 p.m., Golden Valley 6:45 p.m., West Ranch 7:15 p.m., Saugus 7:30 p.m., and Hart 8:30 p.m.

In 2007, Hart Regiment was named state champion in its division by the Southern California School Band & Orchestra Assn. for the sixth consecutive year - an accomplishment that remains unmatched by any other group.
