During a pep rally at Redskins Park on Saturday, Redskins Marching Band members with 20-50+ years of service were presented with rings to honor their dedication.

The Redskins honored more than 30 veteran Redskins Marching Band members on Saturday during a pep rally at Redskins Park.

In addition to performing at Saturday’s pep rally, the Redskins Marching Band is performing on Sunday afternoon in the tailgating areas of the parking lot at FedExField, leading up to Sunday night’s Redskins-Cowboys game.

The Redskins Marching Band is an all-volunteer ensemble formed in 1937 when George Preston Marshall brought the Redskins to Washington, D.C., with the goal of entertaining fans from the moment they walked into the stadium until the time they left to go home.

For more than 70 years, the Redskins Marching Band has led sell-out crowds in the team fight song, "Hail to the Redskins!" They are one of only two pro football marching bands in existence today.

"Hail to the Redskins" made its debut on Aug. 17, 1938 as the official fight song of the Washington Redskins. The song was written by renowned band leader Barnee Breeskin and the lyrics were written by Hollywood movie star Corinne Griffith, the wife of team founder and owner George Preston Marshall.
