Penn Hills High School marching band was one about a dozen schools to participate in this year’s Alle-Kiski Band Festival.

The event took place at Highlands School District’s Golden Rams Stadium in Natrona Heights Wednesday night.

Their performance featured the music of Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Bon Jovi including the hits “You Give Love a Bad Name, “Wanted (Dead or Alive)” and “Livin’ on a Prayer.”

Several standouts, including Isaiah Williams on bass, Joey Gamza on drums and Lorelei Oswalt on xylophone, wore classic 1980s bandanas.

Announcer Eric Cooper introduced the songs and offered entertaining highlights.

Drum majors were Abigail Unscheid and Ben Davidson. Colorguard captain was Reaunna Bumbaugh and rhythemette captain was Destiny Makhanda.

The band is under the direction of Tiffany Sozynski, assistant directors Lauren Fitzroy and David Staymates, rhythemette coach Dina Perlic and colorguard coach Olivia Klonowski.
