Moved there just for my senior year. It was an amazing experience and loved the family feeling. Mr. Mac ran a tight ship and looking back wouldn’t trade it for anything! !
The band bus adventures.
Trips to Florida and Washington oh and hitting an on-field judge with my clarinet at a contest. I had to make a quick turn and he didn’t know I was there!!
Wow, there are so many! I guess it was when we won our first state championship, which was McIntyre’s first year. The pride I used to feel when marching is something I will never forget!

Marching in the Macy’s Day Parade & the infamous Gush n’ Go…
Growing as a family with Byrnes Guard. They were my best friends, my sisters. We were so in tune and it made us grow as a whole so much faster!
The competitions were awesome!! To see all of the hard work payoff was amazing!! Also the friendships that we made will last a lifetime.
I loved being in the band we were all like a big family. I remember all the wonderful trips and competitions we went to. The Rebel Regiment is one of my best memories and all the lasting friendships I still have now:).
State championship!! And singing the alma mater on the bus in harmony as we pulled into the parking lot after every away game and competition.
The countless talks with all the Drum Majors and Mr. Bone together in his office.
I loved the family that was created! From bus rides to sweat and marching in domes and parades, I loved doing it all with my closest friends!
The bond I formed with all the people in the band. I met my best friend in marching band.
Making friends and the trips. Just getting to experience things
Making forever friends!
The football games! Saturday practices before the competition Bus rides to band competitions hang with friends and who can forget the Eye of the tiger to get you pumped!
Ball games,competitions and winter guard. A lot of great times and laughs
Traveling to Hawaii for the 70th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor!
Winning State in 1994 and waiting for the drum majors to reach us so we could do “Eyes With Pride”. Best moment ever.
How close everyone was to each other. We were a family.
Too many to write
Being the first band to win a State Championship for the Rebel Regiment, Band camp at Newberry, Drum Major camp at Furman, Accepting that Championship Trophy while our band stood at attention in the stands!
Getting knocked out by a trumpet before state competition! ?
Making amazing friends
Lifelong friends, trips, Friday night football, Saturday competition, silence on bus, signing the alma mater, winning, cheers from the crowd, marching on competition field and the butterflies that would occur, the smells of fried food, grass, fall, diesel from charter buses, bus rides, band camp, skits, and so on. Too many to name.
There are a lot of memories so it is hard to choose. Probably band camp, especially the talent show night. Trip to Washington D.C., and all the trips we took really!
I can not begin to tell my fondest memory of the one and only Rebel Regiment. If I had to choose, it would be when we marched in the parade in Florida. And also bus #3! We had some wild times on that bus!
Making new friends! Band camp and dancing to Roxanne. Lol.
My fondest memories of being in the Rebel Regiment were always the moments after competition performances. Everyone always being really hyped up but exhausted from giving it their all and congratulating each other for a great show. Those moments were always special to me because those were what really solidified how much of a family we were and how much we cared about each other.
The friendships that were formed.
The family unit we had, the best booster club ever and our trip to NYC and performing in the Macy’s parade!
Singing alma mater on the trips and home.
All my memories from Byrnes High are usually associated in some way to the Rebel Regiment. I absolutely loved being in the band and almost all my closest friends were in the band too. My fondest memory was the year we won state in 1988 when we did the western show and ended with God Bless the USA. It was awesome!!!!!
Winning State Championship. Building relationships that I still have to this date.
The fun times we had at band camp @ Newberry College, Friday night ballgames and band competitions. Priceless!!
Watching people from all walks of life, come together for a common goal and seeing the show come together. I don’t have one specific memory that encompasses what the Rebel Regiment meant to me. They were my second family.
Coming back from out of state and getting a giant group hug and a welcome back, like a family would.
My fondest memory is when the band went to the BOA competition in 2014. Getting to spend those couple of days with my dearest friends was amazing, and the bus ride was a ton of fun. Getting to explore the huge Alabama campus was also an adventure, but nothing can compare to hearing our band name called for first place out of our entire class. There’s not a feeling in the entire world that can compare to a stadium full of people cheering for you, including judges, and being able to share the experience with all of your best friends around you.
EYES WITH PRIDE
Going into the stands third quarter. I’d go straight to my parents and they would always tell me how great we sounded. Everyone in the stands would tell you how much they liked the band
