    The 2016 marching band season may have just come to and end, but it is never too soon to start thinking about you show design and design team for the 2017 season. My name is Adam Nichols, and I am a percussion arranger/educator currently living in Texas. I would love to talk more with you about being a part of your 2017 program. I have significant DCI/WGI/BOA experience. I currently teach and arrange full time in Houston where I am the front ensemble coordinator at The Woodlands High School. I am an artist with Innovative Percussion, Mapex Drums, and Majestic Percussion. My services include full custom percussion arrangements/composition, battery or front ensemble only arrangements, spring/summer band camp instruction, and percussion consultation. Please feel free to contact me at any time. Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon! -Adam Nichols adamnich48@yahoo.com 309-287-0108

    They'd make semifinals easily, and probably be on the outer bubble of the rather large group of bands clamoring for the last 2 or 3 finals spots.

    Mt. Zion I know is getting new uniforms, as well as Rock Island. We might see Lincoln-Way East and North with "alterations/new" uniforms this year, as I believe both were exclusive to the theme last year. We might see a number of new uniforms over the next few years, as bands who debuted new uniforms in the mid 2000's are coming up to the end of the uniform life cycle. O'Fallon is also looking to get new uniforms, but those might be a few years off. Those are the picture below.
