We went through 46 pages of drill in less than four days. There is a lot to do. We want to have the show complete by then. We can work out the kinks as you move along. You can also keep enhancing the show and making things better.

It's been three years since the band has had a big trip. We'll prepare some patriotic music. We'll be spending five nights out there.

The drill we are going through for it looks very musical and it makes a whole lot of sense with what we are doing. I think it will be a very entertaining show. It's a major departure from last year's show, which was very straightforward. We just wanted to march well and play well. This year it's much more theatrical.

We will be one of the smaller II-A bands. The biggest drawback would be we might not be as loud as bigger bands. But it still comes down to performance.
