And so it begins...The Allen High School Escadrille has been practicing for a few weeks now. This is the annual Watermelon Bust. There are a ton of tubas...20-30 or so...lots.
Grant threatens to quit band on a regular basis. But as you can see from the pictures, he is surrounded by friends when he's there. (Grant and Kyle Steele)
More friends...Tony Baker, Kyle, and Jake Holloway.
A Color Guard friend...Rachel Fulton. Yep. Band is a total and complete drag:)
The Steele Brothers...Austin and Kyle (not pictured, Collin:)
The annual "band member/parent" photo.
This is a small sampling of the band and color guard. In years past, there have been 800+ members. There was a fair amount of "fallout" when band directors changed last year, amidst some controversy. Not sure of the numbers now...maybe 600ish? Still a lot!
