down to Mesquite Memorial Stadium to watch the Goin’ Band from Raiderland rehearse…
it was cold!!!!! Kooper sat and watched and listened for about an hour and a half. we got to see the band go through their warm-ups and play through their music. it was neat. they were retooling the Pirate show for the CottonBowl. some of the kids weren’t there, so it was a little smaller. i would have loved to see the new uni’s
they got down to the part of rehearsal where they kept going back and forth and Kooper got a little bored and started acting up, so we left. i enjoyed taking my oldest daughter to see something that i used to be a part of. she said she wants to be in the band at Tech someday. maybe she’ll get to go on an oboe scholarship. she was more interested to know if they had an Honor’s band than she was the marching band, but we all have to march sometime.
here is a video from the t.u. game and the show the band is doing
