From the Hoover Sun:

The Hoover school board on Tuesday night approved spending $5.4 million to build a new band suite for Hoover High School.

The 34,000-square-foot facility will be an addition onto the end of the current high school, in a gravel area near Buccaneer Stadium, said Tracy Hobson, the operations coordinator for the school system.

It will include a central room large enough to seat 600 people and will be surrounded by practice rooms for smaller groups and storage space for instruments and other band equipment, Hobson said.

The existing band room isn’t large enough to hold all of the marching band, which has 352 students, including the color guard and Buccanettes danceline, band director Ryan Fitchpatrick said. And the band is only going to get larger as bigger groups of students move up from Bumpus and Simmons middle schools, Fitchpatrick said.
