The Stafford High Mighty Spartan Marching Band will perform in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1 for the first time in its school history.
The band, which now has 240 members, was one of a handful of bands invited to perform at the Sugar Bowl.

The band director, Rod Rodriguez, had the option of bringing a select few but he wanted every member to have the option to go.
A fundraiser was started, which raised more than $80,000, so all band members could attend the once in a lifetime experience.
On Sunday morning, the Stafford community gave the band a “grand send-off” ahead of the Sugar Bowl game between Baylor and Georgia.
