I don't think I ever truly appreciated the work and effort that goes into a marching band.  And I guess I always thought the uniforms were, well, unfashionable.  That is until my own son put one on.  Handsome as can be.  I love him in that uniform.

Summer band practice was several weeks at the school from 7:30am until noon.  This was in preparation for summer parades.

I was surprised when Simon decided to join Fall Marching Band.  This is commitment.  Two solid weeks, every day from 8am until 4pm in the scorching hot August weather, in a big field with zero shade.  Then after-school practices once school started.  Still hot outside.

But the result is impressive.  This was their 1st performance just for families.

Way to go 120 kids in Timpview Marching Band


  1. Doesn't he look sharp! No doubt about it, marching band requires discipline and dedication. And the THS Band, under the direction of Mr. Fullmer, has always been one of the best in the state. Great performance.

  2. Wow. Amazing. That was so fun. And Latin Jazz meets Home on the Range? Totally awesome. ;)
