Am i being too picky? I didn’t enjoy that as much as most of their shows in the past. I still love the band i just don’t enjoy their show too much this year.

Just personal preference no doubt. I like it so much better than some they've done, but know I'm in the minority. I never understood the little house on the prairie show a few years back :) tho it was highly praised by many and quite successful! Again, just personal preference.

They fully earned their final spot with an extremely complex and well-designed show, and their students achieved a lot on the field and had the run of their lives.   Period.

Congrats to the Indiana and Oklahoma winning bands. Great job Avon, tho I personally enjoy your show FAR more than Carmel, and wish you guys had won since a Texas band didn't.   I'm starting to th

It's crazy to me how good Round Rock is and yet that show wasn't enough to make finals in SA. Insanity...

Any thoughts about Winston Churchill?

 

I think they had their best run so far. They have come a long way since last week. Good job!

 

Friendly note to Churchill parents: Cowbells at a marching band competition is not a good idea, especially during your band's performance. You were the only band parents that had cowbells all day. I was sitting around band directors that made comments that reinforce this. Please help yourself and leave them in the hotel going forward.

As different as the 2 shows are, Round Rock's "little house on the prairie show" from 2015, A Letter to the World, is based on Martha Graham's (American modern dancer and choreographer) dance a Letter to the World and this year's show, Errand into the Maze is based on another of Graham's dances of the same name!

Yes, JB is a fan of Martha Graham. Their 2011 show Acts of Light was also based on a Martha Graham dance.

Oh good to know! Didn't know about Acts of Light being a Martha Graham dance too since my son did not join the band until 2012. But we did attend the Festival of Bands in 2011 so the Dragon Band's performance of Acts of Light was the first time I saw the band perform.

Oh I know....I just liked calling it the Little House on the Prairie Show.  I never really "got" it, but that's okay...nobody ever gets Leander shows either!   :lol:

Look at you committing to band this early morning! Dedication when you have no skin in the fight as it were.

 

No skin...just a deep and abiding love for all things "Texas marching band."  Oh okay fine, go ahead and call it an obsession.  You wouldn't be the first.   :lol:
