  1. Looking Ahead to 2021

    I was watching some TX bands at various comps this year and read one spectators post talking about TX bands rumored and confirmed to be heading to Nats. Here's what they said Rumored and Confirmed from TX (I forgot who's confirmed and rumored): Haltom (Confirmed), Ronald Reagan, Marcus, FloMo, Vista Ridge, James Bowie, LD Bell, Bridgeland, Westwood, Wylie East, Weiss, Woodlands, Round Rock, CTJ. It is officially going to be a bloodbath for GN 2021. That's also not including Avon, Carmel, Broken Arrow, Blue Springs, and Tarpon Springs from other states. Pearland is also on the list of rumored.
  2. Where have you been going in person or online to get your marching band fix. For me I just realized some bands have been doing their competition shows and others are doing the best of shows with songs from years past. I have to say from what I saw so far I was quite impressed with Castle Marching Knights from Newburgh IN. Also Broken Arrow's Queen show was really good.
  3. Show Titles and Music Fall 20 Season

    I sure missed the thread on Covid and what contest were being cancelled. I wish I had seen it before I started this thread. I am still curious as to what each high school was going to do this year.
  4. Post your show title and music here, Thanks

  6. Grand National Discussion

    This was a tough year for anyone that went with the TX bands there and the IN powerhouses. I had to check and double check about Broken Arrow, Tarpon Springs, Wando, Blue Springs, Castle and I'm sure I'm leaving someone out. It just felt like a lot of really good ones were missing.

    Looks like Marian was 17th after Semi's and the Fishers IN was the first band out in 13th, Lawrence Township in 14th, Harrison GA 15th and Park Vista FL in 16th. All of those bands were 4A. Marian widened the spread between themselves and North Hardin KY from a BOA regional earlier in the year, NH 84.95, MC 86.8. In prelims Marian had a 84.725 and Miamisburg OH had 86.2, Miamisburg had 84.02 in Semi's

    Way to go Texas. I had Marian winning class but wasn't sure about finals. I did like how they performed. Vandergrift I predict will take it all , after that is anyones game. Kentucky bands did way better than I expected. I thought Bourbon Co would win class A, Beechwood surprised me. North Hardin I had in 2nd in AA behind Marian doing a flip flop from BOA regionals. Even though Marian didn't make finals, at least they're performing tonight. I would almost place a bet that next year they are back in finals.
