Spent all evening watching marching band videos at YouTube starting with the band review at my hometown then on to the ones at Fairfield and Santa Cruz. Watching the current version of my high school band is... disappointing. But I know that's not entirely fair. After I graduated a new high school opened and resources got split. That being said, the newer one, Golden Valley, is bigger, sounds better and was in the Rose Parade two months ago. Luckily, I can relive some memories at the Merced Marching 100 alumni group at Facebook.
