Fourteen out of what, fifteen. How tough can it be to stand in one place and play music that you've been playing for six months?
Check some of the old footage of Bosse's band from the 60's. That's what a marching band does. Different half-time show every week, march up and down the field, pre-game show. WTF is so tough about high schools bands marching?

You should look on YouTube at what marching bands do now. I think you would be surprised at the complexity of the shows. They don't just stand and play. I have nothing against what anyone has done in the past, but it's like comparing apples to oranges. These students worked really hard and should be congratulated.

All that work for 14th place. Maybe the school board should throw more money at the band program so next year they might be able to finish 12th.

It has nothing to do with money. A lot of it depends on show design, the number of students, and the way it is judged in the state of Kentucky.

I find it despicable that anyone would come on here and criticize and talk these kids down. They are one hell of a hardworking bunch. Their work ethic cannot be beat. They competed at the top of their game. They were committed to making this show an entertainment experience. HCHSBG you all rock! I am a proud parent of a marching band member!

I guess you were too busy playing the drums to learn English and how to write.

They were committed to winning so that the band director could have a trophy to put in the case. They didn't get it-----unless they give out trophies to bands like they do to Pee Wee League ballplayers----everybody gets one.

You get out there and do what we do and then say something. You couldn't get out there and do it if you wanted to!!! Its STATE finals meaning the BEST out of the STATE. We worked really hard and were very thankful that we got as far as we did. We didn't get that far last year. Oh and it was out 16.Do you really have nothing better to do then pick on the marching band. Seriously, grow up.
