Duncanville Band – Going to State!


After a long day in Mesquite it’s official – the Duncanville Marching Band is once again on their way to the State Marching Competition in San Antionio, Texas on November 4th. Congratulations Duncanville!

The band’s show this year is incredible – not just because Kathryn has a featured solo  and a feature with an ensemble at two different portions of the show. The overall show flows beautifully – an excellent mix of pure marching and music combined with a storyline that does not overpower the experience.

Each time they perform they get better and better. The drumline is rock solid, and the color guard ties the performance together accents the performance with an exciting splash of explosive color.

The best is still to ahead – Alamodome here we come!

Sweepstakes at Region – on to Area

It’s a State year again, and the Duncanville Band is on the way. Region brought a perfect day for marching, an excellent performance, and first division marks from all three judges.

Congratulations Duncanville Band!!!

The UIL Region contest is held each year at Duncanville, so we get to help out making sure that all the Bands have their best performance. I managed the warm-up process again this year, getting all thirteen bands through warm-up and onto the field. Each year it gets a little smoother – however I don’t think that is me – more it is the great team of people who help me out every year.

Even more, the UIL contest is a great warm-up for the Duncanville Marching Invitational on November 1st. That’s just a couple of days before state so lots of State bound bands use it as a last tune-up before their state performance. This year it looks like we will have 22 bands as DMI – it will be a great show. If you are in the Dallas area, drop by and see some incredible marching.
