I do believe that in order to get to Disneyland when it opens, we met at the school at either 12:30 am or 1 am. I dunno.

I think the earliest call-time I ever had was 5:00 am for both marching band and winter guard. Although now my 5:00 am call time means "Be at the airport by 5:00 am," translated into directorese it means, "Be at the airport no later than 4:30 am." hehe

This is aside from marching, but I remember when we went to Disneyland for Grad Night. The park "opened" for us at 12:30 am and "closed" at like 5:00 am or so. We had to wait outside in the buses until the park closed to the public before we could go in. It was quite an experience, a lot of fun. I'm curious, though, if you're driving to Disneyland, why would you have a call time of 12:30/1:00? Do you live in Northern Cal?

I think for the day of the Rose Parade we had to be there by 4 or 5 something...I remember though that for some reason, our director had the call time at 5:17 or something like that.

I guess I beat almost all of you guys.... except for the 12:30 am guy. (That's cruel).

I remember when I was a new recruit in my band and I was only 13 years old then. We had to do a couple gigs at the 2000 democratic national convention. Our call time each day that week was 2 am. (took a while cause of high security we had to pass just to get to rehearsal at the staples center.) Call time sucked... but it was worth it. I made it onto TV and a couple newspapers. It was a long week, but the fact that it was my first high school band experience was awesome. I mean, how many others get that type of oppourtunity their freshman year in high school? It was a great year.

When RCC did the Macy's Parade in 1991, our dress rehearsal in front of the cameras was at 4:15am or so. We had to get up and get dressed at 2am I think. not only was it damn early, it was damn cold! For some reason, I got in a fight just before the parade with Espi. That was a long time ago!

3 AM for the '96 Rose Parade, because I was being interviewed on Good Morning America at 5.

Then had to do the parade, the pregame concerts, march pregame, march halftime, post-game concert, and then march back to the buses.

I slept for 2 days after that...

Nothing like the smell of brass polish in the morning...
