I mentioned this in my post yesterday about my sons marching band being over and now I have more time to get behind the vice.
If you're interested, below are a couple videos of his band.

 

L'Anse Creuse High School is normally a top 5 competitive marching band in the state of Michigan.  We have a very creative band director and this year’s theme was Journey to the Center of the Earth with a section from Pink Floyd "Brain Damage".

 

One popular thing to do now is use GoPro cameras fixed to their shakos (hats), and it turns out pretty cool. 

 

Our school is known for our over the top props however this year was a bit tame although we still needed 6 flatbed car haulers, 2 enclosed trailers, and a semi to carry the instruments.  I'm one of the prop crew dads and my evenings since August have been consumed with working at the prop garage at the school until 9:30 PM each night.  It's well worth it and I love that I get to be this involved with something my son is passionate about.

 

Here is a video from one of the baritone marchers next to my son and I’ve input a yellow arrow pointing to my son when comes into the picture:

Here is a video facing the entire marching band and performance:

Both of these videos were taken at Ford Field in Detroit.

...hardcore serious! 

 

Great to see the passion. The helmet Gopro footy is sick too.

 

All that plus keeping it together in school. It is refreshing to see such work ethic coming from youth. As a high school teacher myself I can attest to the notion that it ain't always so. But then again, I always say, good parents make good kids. So good on you Pops!
