Iโ€™m With The Band

Iโ€™ve just spent the better part of the afternoon/evening recording my daughter (and soon to be sons) marching band.

They had their spring concert tonight.

My daughter has been with the band for the last five years. My son has decided, after much research and sensible thinking, that sports are not for him. No, band seems much safer.

Until tonight when he was helping load the trailer and took a spill. Some hard road rash. Thereโ€™s danger in everything if youโ€™re unlucky enough.


But heโ€™ll be okay.

For now weโ€™re looking at an exciting future of band stuff. It ainโ€™t all fun. Thereโ€™s a lot of hard work ahead.

But heโ€™s up to it, just like his sister was.

Marching band has been one of the best things my daughter ever got into. It built her confidence and it has given her strength. And it has given her a family outside of family.

First time.

He even got to take the stage with the band tonight to help out. It was kind of an initiation. Tryouts are next month. We shall see.

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.



This morning we attended the Kershaw County High Schools Marching Band Exhibition.

With everything going on what with Covid and all there, sadly, wonโ€™t be any competitions this year.

Lugoff Elgin High School kindly hosted this exhibition for the other bands and so that the parents could at least see the hard work the students are putting in.

My daughter is in the band (hey Logan!) and her brother and I kind of miss the competitions. I like seeing who theyโ€™re up against as well.

All the bands did great today but I donโ€™t have the bandwidth to sit on all day and upload all the performances.

I know. Iโ€™m partial to the Silver Knights. But hey, Iโ€™m with the band.

At least, for a change, this is something dealing with NCHS and what theyโ€™re doing while away from home instead of the demolition.

The football team isnโ€™t too shabby this year either as Andrew Jackson and Buford High Schools can tell you.

Banished from the Castle the Knights will fight their way back home.
