Cedar Ridge's show was probably my favourite of the night all around.

Cedar Park's was also very fun, I love their no-frills "throw down fun technical music" type of show.

 

Also, Vandegrift and CTJ were so loud and balanced it was unreal. No other group really matched the strength of those two. Well-deserved music captions.


Class of 2015 - Vista Ridge HS, Leander ISD, Cedar Park, TX

Man, so many good shows, Cedar Park's was my personal favorite because of how fun it was. CTJ had some great music, and Churchill's ballad and concept were great as well. I didn't go to finals and my internet was spotty so I couldn't see everything, but what I did see what great. So much wind, some of our back drops and a front drop fell over and so did 4 of Rouse's. Some people tried pulling a back drop back up. It's too bad we placed 19th, some people said they might mess up on purpose to go to our homecoming dance, (mostly freshmen guard because guard is a prerequisite for our drill team) Oh well, we still have plenty of time to improve.

I heard Pioneer during their prelims warmup, I recognized Arabesque. They sounded extremely good musically, it blew me away.

I'll be bold and put it this way: It'll be nice and well-deserved to have a Valley band back in state finals in one of the large classes this year.

Sure did and it was totally worth getting up early for. They were a great band and we saw some real potential in them. Absolutely loved their show!
Each day is a gift. That’s why it’s called “the present.”

I really need to see them. I did manage to catch Weiss HS, and boy did they impress.

Watched Weiss over FloMarching. They were incredible for a brand new school. Can't wait to see them become big competitors in the next few years.

Anybody else think Tom Glenn was a bit undervalued by the judges?

Yup. Tom Glenn did much better than the judges placed them at. I've been saying this all around the forum but a lot of bands were much better than the judges ranked them at.

I personally didn't consider them before the contest, but I watched the recording post Austin and I agree.

I'm hoping in a few years they will be competing at a very high level.

I would have had them above East View but not Burnet. Just how I saw it.
