Liberty High School's marching band was once one of the state's largest marching bands under the excellent leadership of Michael Perri, who retired in 2003. The band still performs all over the country and also hosts the Band Spectacular every fall. 2008 was the 28th annual event. Held at Hite Field in Clarksburg, High School and college marching bands from all over the state are invited to perform.
