This annual event started on July 24th of 2015. Art Lane, Sheffield Music Boosters president and chairman of Music on the Mountain was inspired by an event in Johnsonburg called, ‘A Blast in the Burg’. This event hosted several open class DCI corps that performed there. The Sheffield music boosters committee thought it would be a great idea to bring this type of event back to the Sheffield area. The Sheffield community have a history of marching band corps performing associated with the fire department’s summer festival and parade. Although the preparations were difficult and strenuous, the result inspired the committee to not let it be a one-and-done event. Preparations were made for the next year, and the rest is history.
