Hey, after witnessing this phenomenal season, with records being broken and new bands having breaking seasons, what bands should we look out for next season, and do we have any expectations for the newest bands to break out?

Two Bands....

 

1.  Johnson HS from Buda!!  They won Class A in Austin so I guess you could argue they have already broken out but it was their first year of existence so I am real anxious to see what Year #2 brings!! 

 

2.  Also, keep an eye on our LISD sister school Rouse HS!!  Their first year in 3A last year they made some noise so I wonder if they will seriously challenge Cedar Park and Leander in 2020??

Breaking down some “bands to watch out for” by Region. Of course, I have a lot to say about the Houston area.

 

Austin: Will agree with Bowie and Westwood here. Also, how about Lake Travis? They are good!!

 

DFW: Despite going to college in this metro, it’s ironically the metro I know the least about (at least relatives to the number of great bands there). From what I’ve heard, I’d have to say James Martin, Coppell, and Haltom are 3 schools that are ready to break out very soon.

 

San Antonio: Sandra Day O’Connor’s doing some really cool stuff. Don’t really know many other bands from here, unfortunately.

 

Houston: Completely agree on Bridgeland; their 2019 production was GOOD! Other programs that I’m expecting to break out soon:

————

Cypress Woods (13th @ Austin AND Houston!!)

Dawson (14th @ Houston and a solid showing at SA), Tompkins (11th @ Houston...although they’re losing numbers next year),

Cinco Ranch (7th @ Cypress Showcase; very personal pick...I think these guys have been criminally underrated these past few years),

Klein Oak (16th @ Houston with a really fun Train show!)

 

And finally: the new Katy ISD school opening next year, Jordan HS! Their pool is Tompkins and Seven Lakes performers (Freshmen/Sophomores), so you can’t overlook this future group! Depending on staffing and their regional attendance, one of BOA classes A or AA will become much more interesting.

Definetely agree about Cinco Ranch. What I saw in Cypress showcase finals was very very impressive.
