  1. BOA St Louis Super Regional

    Trinity, TX did not make finals
  2. EIU Panther Marching Band Festival - Oct 5

    They must include color guard, percussion and maybe drum major in the GC score but not the class score.
  3. OCT 27 results

    Here ya go ... not pretty but it will show you the results. Last three bands did not compete due to weather.
  4. OCT 27 results

    Some one posted them over on the Greater St Louis Marching FB page
  5. St Louis Super Regional

    Cheap plug ... but if you are on Facebook, join the "Greater St Louis Marching" page. We'll be doing live updates from the contest and a few behind the scenes stuff (like the draw board!).
  6. St Louis Super Regional

    Here are my finalist predictions: Broken Arrow Blue Springs O'Fallon Jenks Marian Catholic Dripping Springs Owasso Bellevue West Lincoln-Way Grain Valley Betonville Blue Springs South Clovis Fort Zumwalt North
  7. Pretty sure the SIU results are available on the Greater St Louis Marching Facebook page ... please join if you aren't already a member
  8. 2018 Metro East Marching Classic

    Just a note ... the results listed on this site aren't 100% accurate. Fort Zumwalt North and Belleville East tied for first (with the GE going to East for the caption win). Also, there was no Large School Grand Champion named but Triad High School was named the Small Class Grand Champion.
  9. Time for a change

    We've started a FB page called "Greater St Louis Marching" ... more focused on Southern Illinois and Missouri. Already have almost 500 members and lots of activity during the shows yesterday. Not quite like what Illinois Marching was in the past but a good place for folks to share.
  10. BOA Super Regionals (St Louis/Indy)

    And here are my predictions for Indy: Carmel Avon Homestead Union Castle Center Grove Marian Catholic Lawrence Township Rosemount Centerville Fishers Columbus North Eden Prarie Lockport Township Bands that could make finals include: Penn Lincoln Way Lakota East Blue Springs South Ben Davis Victor J Andrews Greenwood Wish I could put Marian higher but after seeing them last week, they are not there yet ... but they will be by November. There are few Illinois bands that could make an impact in Indy.
  11. BOA Super Regionals (St Louis/Indy)

    Lets have a little fun with this. Here are my predictions for STL: Broken Arrow Blue Springs Cypress Falls O'Fallon Owasso Westwood Grain Valley Jenks Bentonville Bixby Prospect Camdenton Morton Fort Zumwalt North Bands that could make finals include: Mustang Anderson Blue Valley West Liberty Lincoln Belleville East Paragould Probably won't be a great showing for Illinois bands in finals but hoping that O'Fallon surprises us and does better than predicted.
  12. BOA Indianapolis Regional

    I'll add a little more commentary ... I was watching on-line, which I don't think is the best experience ... but was also communicating with folks who were live in Lucas Oil: Carmel - Not a typical Carmel show ... but wow. Loved the music .. drill still needs some cleaning but very cool. Blue Springs - not sure I like all the props but its a very powerful show. I've seen it 4 times now from many different angles (front row at St Louis ... oh my goodness). Its going to place top 4 but not sure its my favorite. Center Grove - first time seeing them but solid show. Fairly clean compared to others. Likely: Lawrence Township - will most likely be in finals. Still have their music running through my mind as I type this. Good show ... just not as tight as past LT shows. Madison Central - I feel this was the strongest show execution wise of the day but lacked in general effect. But I love clean execution so I hope to see again tomorrow night. Maybe: Ben Davis - interesting show (not sure about the uniforms) but had good music and relatively clean visual. Would not be surprised to see them again tomorrow night.
  13. BOA Indianapolis Regional

    Well, after today, I see it as: Locks: Carmel Blue Springs Center Grove Likely: Lawrence Township Madison Central Maybe: Ben Davis
