4A Area/State contenders (early insight)

Recommended Posts

Hey folks! Hope everything is good with everyone. 


So, we're basically at the peak of the marching band season and I thought that we could maybe discuss a little about how you all think Area/State will look like this season. Of course, you can say that it's still a lil too early to make those type of predictions but there's been contests to give us enough insight and resource as to where we think bands are at this point. What programs do you all think are Area Finals/State qualifying contenders? Who has impressed you so far? Will there be any new faces, any up-and-comings or will the typical  reigning programs do it again? I'm eager as to what you all have to say. Please keep it classy, thank you.

I have yet to see Argyle's band performance this year. Anyone care to give some insight on it? I'm sure it's excellent though, or so their contest results prove. 

Though, bands that I have seen and I genuinely think that will cause some great commotion this year are Wills Point, Princeton, Grulla, Anna, Melissa and North Lamar. Their shows are very well executed and the marching + music is excellently clean. I have not seen Canton, Kennedale Burnet, Fredericksburg so far but I'm sure they're going to be in the hunt yet again. Atlanta's show is great as well. Rio Hondo/Hidalgo/Port Isabel look good.

There will be 6 bands advancing from Area E to the State Marching Contest. This should be interesting. Some very great programs in this Area, some coming back stronger than ever and others looking for redemption. 

Finals should be interesting. Grulla, Fredericksburg, Pearsall and Port Isabel look to be promising, very competitive and seem like top tier programs this year in my opinion. At least to what I've witnessed. Boerne, Kingsville, Rio Hondo, Hidalgo, Crystal City, Stafford, La Vernia &  Carrizo Springs are also some good programs that I've seen during contests.
