2013 Marching Band Thread

It's the new home for all of us MB parents for the 2013 season.

I have a senior trombone and a sophomore trumpet. The new show has been picked...I Believe and it has a trombone solo. DS is very excited as it will be his.

That's awesome!! Congrats to your DS!

My alto sax DS will be a Senior this year. Not sure how that happened so quickly! I don't think the show has been chosen for next season yet -- or maybe it has, but they don't usually tell the kids until summer band camp.

Can't wait for marching season to start! First football game is August 30th!!

DD just finished her freshman season in the front ensemble. She thinks she has a good shot at Marimba 2 next year.

Excited about new uniforms! They came in late November, just a few weeks after marching season ended. It will be a state year for us (Texas 4A), so the kids will be working hard. Haven't hear anything about the new show, but can't wait to see/hear it.

Glad to join you for another year!

My senior is done / . Bittersweet!!

I have an incoming freshman who made the cut on percussion! Phew! He was the only drummer from his middle school to make it! So far, he thinks he is playing snare drum. That is what they gave him the music for. Usually freshmen have to pay their dues on cymbals or bass drum--- so he isn't taking anything for granted just yet.

We have an intense schedule of practices, football games, parades- and then the granddaddy of them all- The Tournament of Roses Parade on New Years Day!

Sophomore baritone - but she might have to play trombone this year.

The show is picked. I know the theme is cards. Two of the songs are "Hit the road, Jack" and "Bicycle Race" by Queen. I forget the other two songs but I'm sure they have something to do with King and Ace.

I have a freshman trumpet. I'm kind of bummed though, their band is small and they don't do the shows like I did growing up. They will do a few formations but that is pretty much it. But I will say that they make up for their small numbers with their sound.

Hooray! I can join this group! I have an 8th grader who wants to join the marching band next year. I know nothing about marching band!! Well, I do know that practices start mid-June and to expect our fall weekends to be filled with competitions.

He plays the alto sax.

We will have a junior alto sax and section leader and a freshman baritone player. They had "rookie" camp on Saturday, know their show theme and have one practice a week in June with 2 weeks of all day camp in July.

Thanks for the new thread Pembo!

I will have only one in Marching Band this year. DS15 will be a sophomore and plays tuba. DS18 will graduate Friday! The Tuba section will miss him!

We wont know anything about our show until the beginning of August! Hitchcock sounds fun!

OOOH I'm loving reading the themes. Can't wait to see the guard costumes that match those themes.

Funny Hitchcock - most of today's kids don't have a clue about Hitchcock.

My dd will be a sophmore in guard

Our theme is Criminal. Guard will wear black & white - stripes on arm (think jail). Possibly a trenchcoat, sunglasses & fedora hat. One of the songs is Smooth Criminal.

What's weird is our winterguard had the same theme - used the same song (diff version though) Kinda surprised they chose the same thing - won't be the same uniform though

I'm so jealous! Not a State year for us (5A), so there's no real "finale" at the end of the season, no end game. I wish the timing had been better -- it would have been awesome for DS's last year to be a State year. But he's gotten to do that twice, and my own memories of those two trips are just priceless.

Hope y'all make it to State this year!!
