  1. Once inside the experience was defined by: Disco Music Disco Dancing Fashion Drugs Sex Absolute Decadence How many of these things also define the Hendrickson show? Extremely limited access? Not really, it's not demonstrated on the field in a memorable way that defines the show. Disco Music? Yes, the melodies are there but the relentlessly driving groove of a dance club is never the strength of any marching band. It's a problematic design choice. Disco Dancing? Not at a level that defines the show. Fashion? Sort of, but not really. The Guard fashion looks like 1967 to 1972. Studio 54 opened ten years later, in 1977, and fashion had changed considerably. It would probably be helpful if they looked less like flamboyant extras from The Mod Squad and more like the cast of Saturday Night Fever or even The Village People. Drugs? Definitely not. Sex? No, not even a little. Decadence? It's in the name of the show but that's as far as it goes and for a high school marching band, that is as it should be Henny made finals at SA in 16', 17'& 18'. 3 years, not 2 and was lumped with the few bands that were screwed over by BOA in 15'. As a 1980 high school graduate, the fashion is correct. We went from bell bottoms or short shorts, tight knit shirts and platform shoes (not on the marching field, thank god!) To puffy sleeves and parachute pants almost over night in the early eighties. The short life of Studio 54 influenced both fashion and Music of that time. The title is "Music" of a Decadent People. Not the Decadence of the people. I'm not sure if I agree totally with everything you have said, but I do think it's time for Henny to find another show designer. I don't feel the current designer is as invested in the program as before. A lot of members graduated in 2019 and I consider Henny to be a fairly young band this year and with the new director change, I'm sure is influencing the show somewhat. But to see the judges placements; I'm not totally convinced that it is the program, the show or the bands performance that reflects the results.
  2. After reready my last few posts/replies, they seem to come off like I am upset with the results because Henny is out. To be clear, I don't have a horse in this race anymore. I've just become hooked on marching arts and just feel there are other reasons for the outcomes of some of these contest. BTW, I'm sitting on the 40 yard line enjoying finals with my Henny alumni daughter and friend.
  3. Go read some of my previous posts in the forums. I've discused that same point about UIL adjudicators.
  4. Henny was assigned a new director at the end of 2018 instead of giving the job to Phelan who took over after Adkinson was released. Bad decisions cost them at Austin, not having the "loudest" band cost them today.
  5. According to the notes the directors recieved, apparently the "Judges" didn't understand the show concept. Even though the pre-show tells everyone what the show is. Go figure.
  6. I was sitting with the band director that was left behind in case they made finals.
  7. Henny did not drop out and I didn't have Bowie in the top 5. Keller didn't have a full show wasn't clean.
  8. So the weather looks like it's going to cooperate and this regional will actually happen. I know this is a college stadium and Baylor at that, but does anyone know if BOA made arrangements for concessions? We don't want another contest like Dallas.

  10. I can't wrap my head around just 2 charters to Indy. When we marched in Macy's we took 7 charters Jet Blue/Delta and there were only 3 seats available for non band members. Our trucks went up a week in advance. Freshman year...$3K over and above annual fees and that's after a record setting fund raising drive.
  11. .8 only? Or is it .8 per time. Like .8 per second? Ok. Verified with BOA rule book. Under/ over time penalty is: .1 point for every 3 seconds.
