Ok, so their really was not any gold last night from Nokomis H.S. (Newport). But the FA Band certainly would have taken home a trophy if this had been a judged event! Our hardest critic (my wife Emily) said we were more balanced, musically tighter, and had more fun “getting into the music” than any other group there. Kudos!
All competition aside, the Band-O-Rama is a really fun atmosphere where bands from different schools get to hear each other play their most peppy pep band tunes. Other groups included MCI, Nokomis, Dexter, and Herman HS. It was great to hear all of the other bands play and to know where we stand in the pack.
Great job FA Band!
PS: I’ll try to have some video posted on the website next week.
