I just got home from this show. I was pretty impressed with many bands as I haven't really seen any of them so far this year. So this was my first impression of every band. (Except maybe Arroyo, I've only heard them in the lot).

I think the placements were just about accurate. I won't comment on scoring because I don't feel I'm the best at numbers management. But great job from all the groups that performed.

Special recognition goes to:

Arroyo - Back in uniform! And very strong tonight. I think having the uniforms on put some more life into the kids. Opening Alto soloist and the flute soloist later on did a fine job. The overall sound of the ensemble was nice and well balanced. Nice job Arroyo. I look forward to seeing you guys on Saturday.

Hadn't seen Los Osos or Rowland all year and both of them were very strong. Great job for Mr. Alvo for making a smooth transition for the kids and continuing excellence and keeping the progression going. And Los Osos put on a great production. I enjoyed the "band" sound. The brass and woodwind blend was just about right. There were a few phasing issues and I think without those, Los Osos would have high music. I didn't see a recap, but that's just a guess.

Well, congrats to all the bands for the first show I've actually gotten a chance to sit in the stands and watch. It's the home stretch for the season! Keep pushing!
