This high school band from Japan $hits all over FAMU Soflo
« on: August 27, 2018, 05:49:12 PM »


Notice the fact that they care about tone quality, and not just playing loud and out of tune the way the marching 100 does. :tiptoe: :tiptoe: :tiptoe: :tiptoe:

Home girl in the back with the prosthetic leg is still killing it. If she tried to join the flute section at FAMU how many people wanna bet Soflo's wife would rip her leg off and beat her over the head with it for not playing loud and out of tune...or perhaps for trying to ride the same bus as her :shrug:

Strangely enough you didnt deny the fact that oP is correct.

This high school band from Japan is better than the marching 100 :shrug:

I must say this was quite enjoyable.

I have been watching marching bands for decades and decades.This is the first time Ive seen an all female percussion section.

I will say this and I've seen HBCU marching bands in some capacity since the late 60's. Somewhere along the way many have stopped  being bands and have sunk to gimmicks to hide the fact that they aren't very good.

The number of truly good HBCU marching bands that do intricate field formations matched by superior musicianship can be counted on one hand.

Do you know how hard it is to be able to play with good tone quality and proper embochure and proper breathing and hop around like they are doing? As a band director, I find this video fantastic, beautiful and educational!!!!!!!!! :bow: :nod: :bow: :nod: :bow:

I could name some bands that don't give a hotd@mn about tone quality but FAMU definitely isn't one of them. In fact, FAMU is one of the very few HBCU bands that don't teach their kids to over blow. They've always had a very balanced sound.

FWIW, yes the group you showcased in the OP is very talented. They've been to the US at least once when they marched in the Tournament of Roses Parade a few years ago. Not sure what that has to do with FAMU though.

Im sure this is more of a thing for the band heads in here but damn a high school band that is that good is something really special not to mention basically all females at that. A few guys but not many. They can teach alot of college bands a thing or two. Enjoyed them alot!
