CRESTVIEW — A once-in-a-lifetime experience on the field of Jack Foster Stadium Friday night left an impression on Crestview High School student Jacob Anderson.

There, Big Red Machine members performed and later visited with their forerunners.

"I'm speechless, really," Jacob, a trumpeter, said. "It was such a great feeling out there with all the alumni."

Generations of Crestview High School band members mingled on the field before and after the newly formed Alumni Band joined the Big Red Machine for the first time.

Organizers said more than 420 musicians and color guardsmen performed to music from throughout the band’s history, starting with Henry Mancini's driving theme song to "Peter Gunn" and concluding with "The James Bond Theme.”
