Eldon Mustangs, Camdenton Lakers, Osage, Indians and Versailles Tigers
The Lake area marching bands are an intrinsic part of the high school football experience each and every Friday night.
They proudly play their school fight songs, perfect their halftime show routines and do their part to keep fans just as entertained during intermission as all four quarters of the game itself. They also have the privilege of performing at some major events such as annual Lake area festivals or competing on the national stage with marching bands across the country. Without further ado, here are what the marching bands from Eldon, Camdenton, Osage and Versailles have to offer in 2017.
