What?? All the hell Martin was getting about not supporting the band, how is this the first we are hearing about this?
I attended a meeting last Sunday and heard that band scholarships had gone from $100,000 to $130,000. With plans to raise it to over $1 million in 5 years. But that number, like the renovation of War Memorial may be delayed. 😆
Ill believe it when I see it. HBCU bands always overstate their band membership numbers as if people can't count. Parades do not boost membership especially when the parade is after marching season.
So you think a free trip to California won't boost band numbers? It's like that year we played Southern in Vegas. The band ballooned then went back to normal size.
Nope. NSU, SU, FAMU, Ala St didnt grow just for one parade. I don't a large group of new and former members who don't really want march coming back for a full season just to march in a parade in January. I will not be surprised if members come back to participate parade but did ot march at all this Fall, of which I do not think is fair, but that's if NCAT allows that to happen.
