Some pictures of the Del Rio marching band and color guard from the USBands competition in Converse, Texas.
I’m so excited to continue sharing UIL State pictures! These are just a few of the many pictures that jumped out as I skimmed through the hundreds.
So. Much. Band. The 6A State competition was AMAZING! The talent and depth of the marching bands in Texas is crazy! I have barely looked at the 7600+ pictures I shot over the last day and a half. So please be patient. I can’t wait to share them!
Thank you again TxBands.com for the opportunity to be part of your team!
USBands Remo Series Finale Competition
I had to the pleasure of photographing the USBands Remo Series Finale competition in Round Rock on Saturday. And so with that, the marching season is almost over.
Moody High School USBands in Round Rock
Moody High School was one of the bands competing at the USBands competition. The Class A band of less than 20, from Moody Texas lead by Drum Major Desiree Martinez played a show of Journey songs. Towards the end of the show, she turned towards the audience, and got them to clap along. The audience happily agreed. When she did this in the finals, it was one of my favorite moments of the day. The way audience (which I’m pretty sure included a band or two) responded with clapping and cheering, was, well it was awesome. With this in mind, see the last picture in this post that happened after the band finished their show. It’s a smile that says it all.
Some quick highlights from my day at BOA in San Antonio. Wow! So. Much. Band.
Leander High School UIL Region 2016
UIL Region 32 competition took place at Gupton Stadium in Cedar Park on October 22, 2016. Leander was one of several 6A schools that marched in the competition.
Two things that really stood out for me, were the red guard costumes, and the volume. Quoting myself from Instagram ” Wow Leander! The volume! Almost needed my earplugs up in the stands!” Someone replied “You’re welcome.” … Love. It.
Leander advanced to the UIL Area H competition held on Saturday October, 29 in San Antonio. From there they advanced to the UIL State competition to be held on November 8th and 9th in the Alamodome.
