  5. Man, with districts nowadays all starting schools on different days it really has changed the name of the game. So much easier when we all started that fourth Monday of August, and everyone had three full weeks of summer band to get as much of their drill down as possible before school starts.

  7. The directors wanted to give the band family another off weekend since the calendar is otherwise so intense.

  8. These are the bands that I have confirmed are attending - I would be surprised to get an announcement that late, that is a big amount of money to throw together that late. but if it happens, I would work with the vendor to see if we could adjust for the second opening of the webstore in late August. if there is another band out there that is planning to go they have done a great job keeping it a secret.

  10. I'll always remember that show for its closer. So exciting, and the utilization of those vocals as a rhythmic device was really creative at the time. But that overall vibe/mood/atmosphere whatever you wanna call it...where you've spent the entire day stressing out, sweating and giving everything you've got, and you get to just enjoy the evening together with your crew under the stadium lights watching the other bands. And the bus ride home. That tops any singular emotional experience from a show itself. That's part of the joy of going to shows as an alumni/fan. Year by year, that eve

  12. Haltom 2005- Lots of memorable moments, shows, and experiences. I’m not choosing this because it’s perfect, but choosing this show just because it takes me back to a perfect night(but I do absolutely love this show). I watched it in the stands at a competition and I remember how the crowd erupted and the energy they brought. I remember how well our band performed that night, the emotional speech we got from our director, how good all the shows we watched were, how perfect the night air was, hanging out with friends, cuddling with a girl I just started dating, and just how good life was at that

  14. Sorry, this past week I reached out to the directors/boosters from all the programs and some asked that we hold off on launching the store until Monday July 15th with so many of their families out of town for summer trips/vacation. the first round of the store will run from 7/15 through 8/15 and will ship the week of Sept 6th. the second order window will be 8/30 to 10/3 and will ship the week of 10/25 All proceeds with be shared with the schools attending so be sure to pick the school you are supporting when you place your order. Have a safe and happy 4th of July. I will share the link

    2021 BOA DFW (Oct. 9)

    My predictions: 1. Hebron (higher chance imo)/Flomo 2. Flomo/Hebron [really depends on how they perform. if one can get everything completed by dfw, they win. if one focuses hard on making a clean performance, they win.] 3. Marcus/Keller 4. Keller/Marcus [again with 1st and 2nd, depends on how they do. marcus has higher chance. we'll see how this plays out with the heb marching results] 5. Waxahachie/Bell 6. Bell/Wax/Coppell 7. Coppell/Bell/Haltom [top 4 will be secured by those schools but 5-7 will be up in the air in my opinion. unless, one d

  19. I just checked Hebron’s band calendar and this contest is on it! So happy to see the incredible Hebron Hawk band added to this competition. I admit I was a little worried with UIL and all. Maybe they got a guaranteed Saturday prelims slot. 🥰 They should have their pick of days with that bronze medal at GN in 2019 right?

  21. Although I cannot list the best bands in Houston, I can tell you who can be a huge threat in the 2021 season. -The Woodlands: If I were to make a list of the best bands in Houston The Woodlands will be #1 hands down. This band has been strong for the longest time placing high in BOA competitions, Grand Nationals, and UIL. With their 8th place in 2018 UIL state, 2nd in BOA Houston 2019, Grand Nationals finalist 8th place 2019, and 5th place in the 2020 UIL state contest they will impress us once again in this coming season. - Pearland: A very consistant band, they perform well and p

  22. That Hebron 2006 show actually only placed 22nd at state that year. It didn't matter to me because that show made me fall in love with marching band. I was a sophomore at Wakeland at the time in our very first year of opening when we saw them at Carrollton Tournament of Champions. If you didn't know our initial band had 60 total members, and like only 45 winds on the field. Anyways all of us watching that show was in awe of how fun that show was, and how well Hebron performed it. That was the show that got me hooked on marching band, and actually discover this website. It was crazy to think ab

  23. Yes, all in one day! Every large stadium in Austin was in use during the prelims during the day and the finalists performed in the evening at UT's Memorial Stadium. Of course, there were only 5 finalists per class. Still, it was a long day. You pretty much had to pick which class you wanted to watch in the prelims. I mainly went to Burger stadium to watch the 5A groups. There were no 6A's back then and many of the top bands today didn't exist at that time and their schools weren't built yet. Some of the big names in those days - Westfield, De Soto, Crockett, Duncanville, Klein, Spring, Permian

  33. After my daughter graduated in 2020, and a year of COVID, my son will be a Freshman at Rouse this year. Not to jinx anything, but we already made our hotel reservations for State. Looking forward to an awesome year. Rouse HS show reveal and mini camp at the end of the school year has everyone fired up. Its gonna be a good year!
