Congratulations to all of the Garden Grove Unified School District bands for their awesome performances at the Showcase of Bands. Rancho Alamitos, Santiago, Bolsa Grande, Garden Grove, La Quinta, Los Amigos, and Pacifica all performed their field shows / standstills in front of a generous crowd.
The bands watched each others' shows and showed a great deal of appreciation, encouragement, and unity towards each other. All in all, it was a very pleasant event and I thank all the directors, students, and parents for making it so.
I'd especially like to thank the Santiago Marching Cavalier Band and Colorguard for putting on a great show even without a drill, as well as Mr. BaƱagas and our parent volunteers for helping us sound so good. We couldn't have done it without you.
If anyone was there and would like to add comments on the bands, please do!

Hey Alex -

Last night was great - everything we wanted it to be when we started planning this on a cold, rainy day in February.

The bands were great - the volunteers were numerous - and the stands were full of folks just enjoying an evening of musical entertainment.

The Santiago Boosters were an incredible force last night; I'm so glad your band has families like the Blevins on board - freshman parents who get involved are the best!!

A favorite for me personally would have to be the Star Spangled Banner - a special arrangement by one of our directors, performed by 6 of our high school directors and 1 junior high director. That will be on the DVD :D
