    What'd you guys think of the band?

    Hey guys! I'm a senior in the marching band, and I was just wondering what you guys liked/didn't like about things the band did yesterday. We have a new director and are trying to do some new things this year (like new stand tunes...and new uniforms!), and I'd love to hear constructive feedback from students/fans while we still have an entire season to improve.

    Uni's looked nice, but all we could hear was the scoreboard and UNI band.

    Nice to see new uniforms, i wasnt a particular fan of the pieces picked for this halftime show, but the drill was well written.

    Re: What'd you guys think of the band?

    I thought you guys were great. People who haven't been involved in music and don't know the preparation that goes into it don't realize how impressive it was that you guys put together three (four?) songs in the short amount of time you had to do it since school started. My next door neighbor is a freshman in the piccolo section and her parents couldn't be there so I recorded it for them.

    Re: What'd you guys think of the band?

    I have known the new Marching Band director a very long time. He is a great educator and understands the tradition of the ISUCF"V"MB. Trust in him..you won't be disappointed.

    I hope you are enjoying your time in the band. I wish I could make it back for homecoming to see the new uniforms, but scheduling won't allow it.

    Re: What'd you guys think of the band?

    Thumbs up here! You looked good and sounded good, you kept the old traditions and added some new ones like playing cowbells in front of the students. I used to like the pa announcer excitedly introducing the halftime show but with the new speakers he was too loud. Turn the dang volume down, you blow us out of there and my ears are ringing and can't hear the band!

    Re: What'd you guys think of the band?

    Uni's were big improvement, except for deciding to put a stupid cartoon on the back. Prepare to look outdated in 5 years. By skipping that they could have had a nice clean traditional look that would have still looked awesome in 30 years.

    "Short Fights" or whatever was really cool and needs to be played more.

    Re: What'd you guys think of the band?

    I liked that the scoreboard showed us the overhead view so we could see the whole shape of what you guys were doing.

    I also enjoyed seeing that the pep band for volley ball had their uni's on already....well have of them. There was a large pile of jackets behind them :)

    Re: What'd you guys think of the band?

    You all looked and sounded great. I thought perhaps the new scoreboard helped with the acoustics a bit too. Sorry my camera phone didn't quite capture the pic well enough.

    Also wasn't sure how to interpret one of the song's UNI's band played.

    They were better than the football teams performance in the first half.
