Hey guys! I'm a senior in the marching band, and I was just wondering what you guys liked/didn't like about things the band did yesterday. We have a new director and are trying to do some new things this year (like new stand tunes...and new uniforms!), and I'd love to hear constructive feedback from students/fans while we still have an entire season to improve.
I thought you guys were great. People who haven't been involved in music and don't know the preparation that goes into it don't realize how impressive it was that you guys put together three (four?) songs in the short amount of time you had to do it since school started. My next door neighbor is a freshman in the piccolo section and her parents couldn't be there so I recorded it for them.
Thumbs up here! You looked good and sounded good, you kept the old traditions and added some new ones like playing cowbells in front of the students. I used to like the pa announcer excitedly introducing the halftime show but with the new speakers he was too loud. Turn the dang volume down, you blow us out of there and my ears are ringing and can't hear the band!
Uni's were big improvement, except for deciding to put a stupid cartoon on the back. Prepare to look outdated in 5 years. By skipping that they could have had a nice clean traditional look that would have still looked awesome in 30 years.
