This Year We Present


An expedition into an uncharted, exotic, and mysterious world uncovers the hidden secrets of the native people. Many challenges lie ahead, but we will march on to expose the true glory of this forgotten and undiscovered rhythmic beauty and driving force: The Lost Fralinger civilization.

Watch us New Year's Day on PHL17. If you live outside of the Philadelphia Metro Area, watch on PHL17’s Live Feed here. Fralinger is 3rd in the String Band Division line of march this year. Look for the first String Band on TV starting at 1:00PM ET and Fralinger at approximately 1:30PM ET.
