Marching Music for the Alaska Democratic Primary

Today is the deadline for ballots to be received in the 2020 Alaska Democratic primary.
The 2020 Alaska Democratic primary was scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 4, 2020, in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election. However, in person voting was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, while mail-in voting was extended to April 10, 2020.[1] The Alaska primary is a closed party-run primary, with the state awarding 19 delegates, of which 15 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the primary.
Since Bernie Sanders dropped out, there is little suspense left in the result, although it's possible that Sanders could win, as he did in 2016, which would be a Pyrrhic victory.

That written, I'm still going to post one of my marching music for a primary election entries, just as I did for the Wisconsin Primary.  Since there are no drum corps in Alaska, it's a marching band's turn.  In this case, it's the Colony HS Knights Marching Band, which Music213 captured at the 2014 Pasadena Rose Parade.

In addition to performing at the Rose Parade, the band peformed at the 2017 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, where the video identifies them merely as Alaska Marching Band Macys Day Parade NYC.

Enjoy the music as you're awaiting the results, even if they don't mean as much anymore.  In the meantime, stay tuned for the Flashback Friday  retrospective I promised yesterday.
