Well if you took the time find out you would have realized that the South Carolina drum line...not a complete marching band, is a COLLEGE band. They of course are going to play at a much higher level. ALL of our bands work very hard. We welcome you to come out to practice and watch them while these kids are working on their field show for next school year during the summer while other kids are still on vacation.

As I invited the above poster you are welcome to come out to band camp and impart with some of your knowledge of musical instrument to help these poor children. We all are wanting bands that flourish apparently, some support would be real nice.

well my child is in bell band and i think they done a awesome job if people would support music locally here and show more support and put effort into it instead of complaining and sitting on their butts then bell could be as good as south carolina. or anyone around. the band instuctor does a amazing job at teaching the children music, learning how to play but he can only do so much with what he has to do with so step up and show support.

Albey decided they didn't live in the right town and didn't have the best interest of Bell County at heart - so he replaced them.

I am thankful that the SC drum line took the time come here and show us their talents, maybe it will bring some attention to something that is far down the list on the receiving end in this county....the arts. All of them! That being said as the above post stated the South Carolina drum line was a collegiate band. Their playing is going to be on a whole different level than our children here. There is much more funding, dedication and commitment on a collegiate level. I will dare say that most of those kids that marched are going to college on a music scholarship, meaning they have to attend all practices/ performances I am sure most of them have an instrument at their disposal at all times plus individual instruction time. To compare their abilities to our local children is the same as comparing any of your local high school basketball teams to UK basketball. See the difference?

I went to high school in another state. My school had the top placing marching band in the entire five state region. We were invited and played at the Orange Bowl, Rose Bowl, and every city cekebration in the state. Why? Because our director was meaner than a Marine drill sergeant , but MOSTLY it was because my community financially supported the arts in school.
Bell HS marching band has the potential to be amazing, but in order to keep in step and tune, they need to rehearse more, have better equipment, etc. That can't happen until our school art and music departments receive more state and COUNTY funding. If you want a great band for your community events, support the band with fundraisers, donations, etc. If you want it, PAY FOR IT

I was in band at Pineville Schools from 5th grade until I graduated and also furthered my music experience in college. Yes, college bands and groups are going to show a higher calibur of performance! I mean really?! I guess it needs to be put in scenario that backwoods simplietons can understand - it is like having a guy who races at a local little track and instantly comparing him to Dale Earndhart - really? If you want your local bands to perform close to the college level tjen donate your time to earn money or donate money for speciality staff. If you're not going to do either then please shut up because you are creating negativitu and I know from personal experience how much kids in band are rediculed and made fun of. Along with the crappy support from the school system because, heaven forbid, the football use the same equipment 2 years in a row or that 20,000 dollars wasnt used on grass on the field. You want your local bands to perform then support them and offer your money and/or your time. If youre not willing to do either then again,shut up.
