Thx. I do have a lot of HBCU bands that I like but I just don't have favorites. I am a fan of BCU. I like the program that y'all have over there. Lately, I have been looking into them more and more.

hey,

add me as a friend(i am @ the max) and i can discuss certain things in private..
to answer ur question, YES & NO !

60 years ago FAMU had an outstanding music program and a nice marching band.

when Dr Foster inherited the music program it was in good shape BUT HE IMPLEMENTED CHANGES THAT CHANGED MARCHING BANDS 4Ever !

u look at MANY OF THE GREATS and they CHANGED THE BANDS THEY LED !
what STILL BOTHERS ME ?

almost none of the high school and HBCU are using the BLUEPRINTS THAT ARE ALREADY KNOWN !
sure they want to LEAVE THEIR STAMP & IMPRINT ON "THEIR BANDS" and thats cool.

But certain things will work NO MATTER WHAT ERA !

some of the OLDEST MARCHING BANDS N THE USA STILL DO THE SAME DRILLS,KEEP SOME OF THE SAME SCHOOL/BAND TRADITIONS AND LOOK & SOUND GOOD WHILE DOING IT !

Y do HBCU BANDS HAVE ISSUES WITH SOLID & POSITIVE TRADITIONS ?

now im not speaking on finances,budgets etc.

college musicians are experienced and can play,march,drill ANY MUSIC,ANY SHOW .

i dont buy the argument that things ARE NOT ENTERTAINING ANYMORE !

each person in the organization has to bring their A+ GAME and be TOTALLY COMMITTED TO BEING THE BEST ALL THE TIME !

ITS OKAY TO BUILD ON AND ENHANCE A LEGACY,TRADITION,A HISTORY !

if ur not doing that then something IS WRONG !

as far as high schools "falling off"- administrative indifference,non chalant attitude by band members,lack of committment and the "BAND DIRECTORS" ARE NOT/ARE NOT ABLE TO TEACH !

n a few years u and ur peers will see big differences n the band world and shake ur heads !

n my day there were rarely BAD BANDS just average,good,better and very good bands!

the students,staff,parents,teachers,alums,volunteers WERE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE.

they practiced what they preached and let the performances do the talking..

all technology is good but when kids didnt spend most of their time on cells,computers,internet related things etc-------------they actually practiced their sports/music etc.

b safe b cool
