The Infamous Band Trip!

Soooo . . . anyone going anywhere cool this year? My marching band is going to New York in April. That ought to be cool, because we get to see lots of shows and stuff. As far as the reason WHY we're going... I'm not quite sure, ha ha ha. Anyone going somewhere real far, like out of the country for a competition or anything? -Kelsey

      This year we really aren't going anywhere special, the Reno Jazz festival... But next year! Our first trip will be to the Monterey Jazz festival. Then, in the spring, we're going to England for some sort of festival or something. The Monterey festival is for our school jazz combo, and the England trip is for the jazz band.

      That's funny, we're goin to NYC over Spring Break too... That is if more people go. I'm just from a little farm town school, so we don't have a bunch of money to throw around. Cost bumped from 400 to 500 just cause we only got 27 people going... oye vay ~Courtney~

      My freshman year, we were invited to play in Disney World as a feature. Pretty cool. This year, we went to Indianapolis for Bands of America Grand National Championship. The competition to end all marching band competitions.

      My band director always keeps a lid on the location of the trip utill about two months before. BUT, We went to Cocoa Beach last year and it was a blast. We visited Islands of Adventure and Universal in Orland but did other things too. On the way through FL, we stopped by Florida University and did a clinic thing with the director there. All in all, the trip was awesome and we didn't have to march in a parade. WOOT

        Your Band teacher is taking you to Sax Lake, off the coast of Sax Island. There you will swim with the sax fishes.

              Whoa, Texas would be really cool . . . As far as I'm concerned, the farther away, the better! LOL... Sophomore year- The concert band went to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We played in some concert festival and then went to Dollywood. Freshman year- Marching band went to Orlando, Florida to do a parade in Disney World. That was really fun. They gave us fast passes for a whole day for performing, so we didn't have to wait in any lines! Every other year, we alternate concert band trips with marching band trips. As I'm in both, it's not a problem. It's JAZZ band I wish we'd do more stuff in. We just do a bunch of local performances. -Kelsey

              Re: The Infamous Band Trip!

              well the way we work it is we choose a festival for both concert and jazz band since both of our bands have a standard that we set, we normally strive to go to the better festivals. ours is like a 4 day trip we dont go to compete tho.. we go to get evaluated.. last year was THE ONLY year that our school has ever entered the competition aspect of the festival. we won everything possible. beat every band. lol the only part we didnt win was some choral competition and thats because we werent entered. that was one of hte best trips weve been on. it felt so good lol. how insane would it be if one of us ended up going to the same festival as someone else on here?? lol id laugh

              I hear ya saxgrobie. All our jazz band does is gigs around the cincinnati area. We never go anywhere. But I kinda understand why. The directors want everyone, not just the jazz band, to have an equal chance. As far as the band as a whole goes, we went to Orlando, Fl last year. It was the bomb. The parks were awesome, marching down Mainstreet USA in the magic kingdom was the best moment in my life by far, and the beach at port canaveral was sweet too. We'll be going to Washington, D.C. next year to march in the Cherry Blossm Parade. Really looking forward to it, but I hear the parade route is LONG.

              my band is going to some compitition in FL next week. and then the jazz band is playing in Disney world, if enough of us are eligible. that pises me off, half of our band is ineligible and if they aren't passing by wed afternoon, we're screwed for state, my last year to win. i hate stupid people. but fl should be fun just the same. lol

              Our band usually goes on trips every two years, but when we were suppose to go to Disney World, nobody wanted to go, so we didn't go. We should have chosen New York because then I think people would have wanted to go. Anyways, next year we are going to play at the Alamo Bowl.... hopefully.
