  1. Yes, the young lady is a fantastic singer, but that show feels more like they are featuring the vocalist and not the band.
  2. is there something wrong with the turf? Twice now I've seen a Keller performer fall
  3. I read there was a fatality accident on I35 causing mass delays for those heading south.
  4. I LOVE Rosario's. It isn't a trip to SA without at least one meal there. I have walked to and back Rosario's from the Alamodome. It is about a mile. Took longer to get back to the dome ;P
  5. The serious stuff was south and east of the LISD north area. I don't know about Dallas proper areas. Some of the people at work had issues or near misses.
  6. I saw Haltom's finals performance (I missed many of the others). To me (and I am far from an expert) it seemed as there was a lot of park n play with no movement, their spacing was off, and some of their steps seemed off. It was a fun looking show, but didn't seem as crisp as I've seen before.
  7. So LD Bell is playing at St. Louis Super Regional, San Antonio Super Regional AND Grand Nats? Wow, I'd hate to have that travel expense.

  11. The University of Arkansas Razorback Marching Band "The Best in Sight and Sound" has a full pit AND if you have qualifying GPA/Scores, Texas students can get the "in-state" tuition. My kids did. Plus, they do have scholarships for playing in the band. https://fulbright.uark.edu/departments/music/ensembles/band/athletic-bands/razorback-marching-band.php not that I'm a fan or anything

  13. oh and I really feel for Marcus and Hebron to perform in two of the first three performances on Saturday. That is a long bus trip after a football game
  14. I don't know why they chose that slot. Usually the previous champ played last in prelims.
  15. Just a few things: - FloMo is not a complete show. There is a lot more coming. They have a lot in but not a complete show. - I watched a lot of the prelims via FloMarching and finals in person. There was a HUGE difference between watching the stream and in person. I was about six rows from the top right at mid-field for finals (my favorite place to sit for bands). There is a lot that you can't hear nor see on the feed that you see and hear in person. - There was a noticeable collision during the Hebron finals performance plus I felt that Hebron's music in finals was not as crisp as Hebron normally plays. There were a few times that my ears caught some very odd sounds, including the very last note of the closing solo. I thought Hebron was a lot better in prelims than they were in finals. - The top bands that performed all had some issues, but they are all amazing bands. Each of them will take what they learned this week and improve on the next contests.
  16. Was just about to say that LSUFan Sand (chaos) moving into glass (harmony)
  17. Going to be HOT! Hope everyone is well prepared. Pennington Field does not have good ventilation. Bring sunscreen and pre-hydrate
  18. Many big schools will give you scholarship money if you march in the band (have to make tryouts). From what I understand (going off friends and children of friends experiences) if you were at one of the top BOA bands in Texas being in a university marching band is a lot less stressful and time consuming than your High School band.
  19. My wife and I are Arkansas kids. I went to North Little Rock Northeast HS (didn't participate in band past Jr. High) and my wife went to Lake Hamilton HS outside of Hot Springs (they have participated at BOA Grand Nats in several of the past few years)
  20. I'd love to see the year by year history of Marcus, LD Bell, and all the great bands in Texas. I only knew the one band I posted. Hoping to get the rest here. Sorry if it seemed like a brag.
  21. are you talking about being on the field during the actual performance or during set up and take down?
  22. (Please let me know if this isn't the right forum for this topic.) Band has been a competitive activity for many years. Some are new to the game, others have been on the scene for decades. Why not post a brief about your band's competitive history and awards won. Here is the Flower Mound High School Band history. The 2011-12 school year was the first year that FMHS decided to be a competitor in the BOA events and was the first year for Brent Biskup to be the Assistant Director/Director of Marching (luckily it was also my daughter's freshman year at FMHS). In 2012 Mr. Biskup became the Director of Bands 2019 - Vitrifiy - 1st place BOA Dallas/Ft.
