Best features of the 2017 season?

Recommended Posts

North Hardin's sax ensemble

 

I second this motion. The whole Tarpon Springs-esque style of having miced woodwind solos flying over band music is really awesome and I’m glad we’re seeing bands imitate it here in Kentucky. It is a style I really love

My name may suggest a slight bias as I marched Mellon in high school so my favorite was definitely North Hardin’s Mellos, and the trumpet moment in the closer.... and the bass clarinets.

Almost every performance gave me chills. Almost. *looks at finals*

I really enjoyed Lafayette's Woodwinds.. They weren't as good as north's but they were juat right for that show and a had a great volume and presence on the field. North's bass clarinet feature was FLAME. Those are the only features that have left a lasting impression on me Honestly

Almost every year I have a 1A feature that sticks out really well, but 2017's 1A was so lackluster that I don't have one and that upsets me.

Adair's Bass Flute. Never expected to see a bass flute on a marching band field. Pleasant surprise and personally I enjoy telling everyone around me it was a bass flute... because they had never seen one before. Great use of an instrument so rarely seen by the average marching band fan.

Bag pipe solo performed by...you guessed it! GLASGOW!

I don't think they had one this year lol... nor do I think they have had one in the past several years.

A little late to the party here, and very biased, but I thought Williamstown's trombone ensemble and trio in "I Put A Spell On You" were very good by the end of the season.

You know what? I'll accept this answer. At the very least, it was the best we got.
