2021 BOA McAllen (Sept. 18)

Recommended Posts

Second Block Thoughts:

Nicki Rowe: Nicki Rowe was the first to perform and they did just that.

Georgetown: After some technical difficulties were overcome, Georgetown proved what a force it can become in the band world and will possibly be a finalist contender.

Weiss: Overcoming technological adversity again, Weiss showed why they made state finals in 2019. This band will most likely be a finalist in part due to its balanced sound and effective guard and may very well place  relatively high and capture a class championship along the way.

Grapevine: While small, Grapevine packs a punch in its sound and is a possible finalist contender. The flute solo in the ballad adds to the effectiveness of this band.

Santa Rosa: Santa Rosa showed that they love to perform and compete. This band is small but mighty.

Valley View: Returning to the field, Valley View came to perform, and their eagerness and love for the activity was clearly evident.

United: The largest band that has performed today, United pack a punch. Opening with a trombone solo, the band followed suit and proved that they did not come to play. United is a possible finalist contender.

Harlingen South: A relatively small group, the band opened with a small woodwind ensemble playing Richter. A pretty impressive sound is produced by this impressive group.

Second Block Finalist Contenders:

1- Weiss




5- Harlingen South

The audio is fairly decent in this stream, but I feel like I'm having trouble hearing soloists from time to time. 

Looks like the 3 Box5 boom mic's for the band are high up and close to the field.   Some of the band provided speakers may be behind  or parallel with them so the sound will not pick up as good online from the solo speakers.

Looks like prelims has been paused due to heat conditions.

wonder if they will delay so long that there will be no finals?

same risk in Austin next week with temps in the 90's that turf is going to be above 100 degrees by the afternoon

I remember one BOA Dallas back in 2013, it was probably a little less hot than it is right now in McAllen but the effect was much the same. One of our quad players fainted marching off the field and nearly cracked the back of his head open. Too bad we can’t get more indoor venues for these contests.
