Austin-East band is 'lit', adds to atmosphere at Roadrunner games

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Kenneth Smith is in his second year directing a band which which, he says, brings it every time out.

"It's lit," said Smith. "it is totally lit from the time they come out of the band room and march all the way up they bring the show."

Perhaps what is most unique about the A-E Band is that its home is a performing arts school - a school which brings together some of the most talented middle schoolers from across the city.

"And bringing them together and creating some really great music. I think it's special here in Knoxville to have that vibe of showmanship," said Smith.

You can catch the Austin East band in action one last time during the 2018 football regular season. Friday night, the Roadrunners host Alcoa at 7:30 p.m.
