William Allen's Band


From Sunday's St. Paddy's Day Parade. They're small but very impressive.

Good on them. As a parent who just put two through college, I can tell you that "Bandos" have lots of fun and get lots of college money thrown at them. Nice post.

You have to have the parade BEFORE the holliday. St. Patricks day was over... no wonder the small turnout. Its like having Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Dec 3rd. Who schedualed this thing for the saturday after and expected any kind of turnout? I'll bet the band would have had a great turnout if the parade was on the 14th. Thank You.

Perhaps the parade would have been more successful if it was earlier. But the sole point of this post was Wm Allen's band. I'm no expert, but I thought they sounded very nice.

I don't believe that was their full band. With 7 divisions the parade would have been too long with full bands. CCHS band was similarly reduced.

It could be the full band. The band director is a bit of a dick and does a decent job of driving away many musicians.
