  1. I am really, really liking this CTJ show. Cleaning very rapidly from what I have seen. This my be one of my favorite all time when it is all said and done.
  2. Yeah this show is very ballsy. Very drum corps style, even moreso than usual. Going to be a lot of fun watching them put it together. Going to be a force to be reckoned with in November. Show seems to definitely be designed for LOS.
  3. CTJ does indeed have a full show on the field already (and CLEAN for this early), and they sound absolutely amazing. Truly incredible what they are doing this year. I think it has potential to be one of the all-time greatest shows, that is how much I love it. They are clear winners to me. Vandegrift is next. Watch them at the NEISD fall festival this year trust me. You won't be disappointed.
  4. Just going to wake up from the dead and comment on how amazing CTJ is this year. Mr. Lipman just declared Claudia Taylor Johnson a world class Drum Corps, it's official I'm calling it. They as always have their full show on the field by this point but this year they also sound like a late-october ensemble. They sound amazing already. I am excited for the cleaning. CTJ going for the throat. I haven't seen too many of the shows from the big name shows but CTJ is definitely a contender for the eagle this year from what I can see. I need two investigations into the Claudia Taylor Johnson High School Marching Band: The first one into how much they practice. Make sure that t hey are following the eight hour rule. (/s) The second is if the students are really just a bunch of BAC members disguised as high schoolers. Whatever it is I am loving what is coming out of CTJ this year. I am very excited to see what they have for the field in LOS this year.
  5. I see that Grand Nationals looks to be really interesting this year from the evidence we've received thus far. Color me intrigued, excited for the season to come and the emotions that flow from these students.
  6. Wow, I am actually thoroughly surprised that even these schools will have the financial means, let alone the ability with district restrictions, to make the trip up north. I hope that marching band this fall runs strong! Yes, I know, it's as if you are seeing a ghost here. I think it is time I start being a bit more active in these parts again....
  7. Yeah. I think they will. There is a really great leadership team set for next year and the band is still growing both in size and talent. Numbers are already over 350 for this year and that’s really great. This will be Mr. Perkins first true show that he had the time and ability to design and polish, so I know that it will be a million times better than last year, and I know that he’s well known for consistency. I also know he happens to be an amazing motivational speaker and his speeches are amazing. I am confident to say that I know that the Madison band is under great hands. Not to mention the great percussion instructor we have and the color guard instructor who isn’t a literal founding father of a winter guard circuit in Texas and always designs amazing shows. The Madison Band will be stronger than ever this coming season. I can feel it.
  8. That’s so cool! I am glad that you get to see your daughter make an impact on other people now!
  9. I know Madison hasn’t exactly been consistent, but given our new HBD I have sneaking feeling that is going to change very soon. They may not be in the next ten or higher this year, but I think that will change either next year or two or three years down the road. The Madison Band is going places now. Last year was just a really tough year.
  10. Lol that was a funny one, but I didn’t fall for it. Vista Ridge’s announcements are designed much, much better (no offense) and their music selections a are specifically listed and not all over the place with some artists, some specific songs, and some general soundtracks. Sorry, if it were more sophisticated I maybe would have fallen for it lol. Good try, though, as it gave me a good laugh.
  11. I would like to present the show for the 2020 Madison High School Band: "Dusk to Dawn" Featuring the following: A Kaleidoscope of Mathematics - James Horner A Child's Garden of Dreams - David Maslanka Rest - Frank Ticheli Dream on - Aerosmith https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-LuEq9wTE8&t=28s I hope you enjoy! I personally am really excited to see this from the stands. I can already tell that this is going to be an amazing show to watch and I wish I could be there to perform it. I can't believe that I am not going to be out there for the first time in four years. Now that this is the first full show that our new director has had the chance to design for us I know that this band is going to go great places this season - assuming that we even have one. Go Mavs!
  12. Wow that Leander show reveal was really interesting. I am excited to see how emotional band performances are going to be this year. I really think that this year will be a season full of special performances. I think a lot more tears will be shed this year from everyone, not just the performers.
  13. Here is an update from me! I have committed to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this fall, and am double majoring in Meteorology and Mathematics of Physical Phenomena (the two fit right in together with little extra classes needed thanks to the math requirements for Meteorology) and double minoring in Physics and Computer Science - again with little to no extra classes. I plan on marching Bass Trombone in the marching band and possibly participating in concert ensembles as well, to be decided upon entering the second semester as I will have a better grasp on the time I have available and how my classes are going. @northtexasbandfan I wish that your son was not a senior this year but a junior, because it would be cool to have someone to connect to and ask for help while I am there. It is okay, though, as I am sure I will be fine. I am super excited to return to my true home, and I am especially excited to be a part of the Husker legacy. I can't wait to perform in front of the most loyal fan base in all of sports, and I can't wait to experience the Nebraskan hospitality once again. Now that I don't have much school left I spend nearly each and every waking moment thinking about college. I am doing whatever I can to prepare for the roller-coaster ride that is ahead of me. I guess we will see how it goes! Go Big Red!
  14. I wonder how much this will affect how many contests bands go to this year and how far they travel even if this clears up by the middle of the summer.
  15. Thank you as always Dan! Great content always comes from you. Keep it up!
