You know the song - "Kansas City" by Fats Domino. But for these flutists, drummers and color guard members, it's New York City, here they come.
"Even though we are small, we can put out a big sound and we put in the preparation that is needed to put on a good show," said Maddie Jenkins, a trumpeter with the Grain Valley High School marching band .
Two years ago, the marching band applied to perform in the 2016 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade .
"We started out as a little band with big ambitions and now we are finally getting up there," said Kaitlyn Helm, a flutist. "We have achieved so much in the past couple of years."
The band found out it would play the parade about a year and a half ago. Since then, members have been preparing for this upcoming Thursday.
