Honor America Night With Lufkin Bands...

That's Lufkin Marching Bands that is. Had a nice evening with Cathy, Mary, Miguel, Morgan and Ali watching the Lufkin bands, middle school through high school perform their annual program to honor veterans. Morgan, Mary, Miguel and Katie all marched in this program through their band years.  It was my first time to watch the band march since Mary graduated and being an old Panther band alumni myself it was really a treat.

The band is big, loud, has good low brass and the ground trembles when it marches. 

                        They won 1st place at the military marching contest                                                         this year. 

Of course I made photos of the tubas. I'll add them to my facebook photos of tuba players album. Seemed a lot of the marches, of which some were things I played in high school played to the strength of the low brass. I like that in a band. 

If you are a parent and want your kid doing an activity pick band. You and the kid will never regret it. Of course the kid might end up like me playing three string cigar box guitars and looking for drum and tuba Christmas gigs but then again it usually turns out better.
