Jeffersonville High School was founded in 1871 in the downtown area of Jeffersonville, Indiana. As one of the largest high schools in the state, it has garnered so many awards and achievements throughout the years that my mind is ready to explode. Its Air Force Junior ROTC program has won countless awards for its color guard. And the boys track team has won a record 38 championships in a row! But it is the Jeffersonville High School Band that has been the most impressive. This legendary band was the training ground for many of the world's leading musicians, writers, comedians, and heiresses -- including Steve Martin on flute, Desmond Dekker on trombone, Paris Hilton on e-flat clarinet, Thomas Wolfe on alto sax, and Russell Simmons on soprano clarinet. If you don't believe me, you can view the full list of famous band members by clicking on the photo below.

Here, have a listen!  And if you're craving a little calypso number, give this one a try.
