Whatever. Texas State is bringing the band Saturday. Ready for a throw down!
I am ready for a wonderful Football experience along with a wonderful Marching Band experience at Cajun Field on Oct. 5th
Everyone needs to spread the word to all of our fans to get into the stadium for our bands pre game....very exciting... and a practically full house for the team as they roll out of the tunnel will do wonders for the Cajuns....
For all of you that live out of town and have not been able to make a game this year this is a recent post on Youtube of the exhibition performance of the POA and the recent District Marching Band Festival.
If you go to full screen mode you won't see the ULL reference. The performance was a compilation of pregame and some of the halftime show. Notice reaction of the crowd (mostly band geeks). It looks like they enjoyed the performance and it could make some of the members of the high school bands want to come to UL. There will be another exhibition performance this weekend at the Louisiana Showcase of Marching Bands to be held at Cajun Field. This event will be for bands from around the state. So if you are so inclined, you may want to pass by the stadium this weekend just to see what takes place. The Showcase weekend is a big fund raiser for the band and the more money they make the more the band has to improve and grow. The various improvements at the stadium (although minor compared to what is planned) along with the improved band should provide a more favorable impression to some of these people that never set foot on the Campus other than for events like this. I know that throughout the course of the event the PA announcer does provide information relative to all of the various scholarship opportunities available at the University.
Hats off to Lafayette Music Company for providing sponsorship of this event. As all the construction on campus continues and eventually is completed this event will become an even better avenue to "Showcase" the University.
