    ooh LA La. LA Welcomes Dr. Jason Missal as New Band Director

    I just found out that Eric Melley has moved to Providence College to be near his family. The new band director will be Dr. Jason Missal who is moving from the University of Texas at Austin. That's all I know. Maybe Barisaxman can add more information.

    Undergrad at Oklahoma State. Master's at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Doctorate at Texas at Austin. Haven't heard a lot, but every word I have had is great. People that have worked with him really like him.

    Awesomeness! How many band members have we averaged the past several years? 300+ is what I would love to see and hear! Welcome to the Cajun Nation! Help make our band the best in the south! Thanks

    Finally a band thread. I thought we were going to go through the whole summer without a band thread. And of course Boomer piping in about the fight song.

    Like the resume, particularly the Big-12 ties.

    Band Director, Big-12/PAC-10

    Athletic Director, Big-12/SEC


    Like where this is headed....

    Something that happened 5 or 6 decades ago.

    Don't look now but there's a mascot thread as well....

    Meanwhile I'm over wondering if we find a passing game this fall....

    Didn't change the fight song, per se, but made it so it's played TWICE instead of once through, and put a fancier ending, but contrary to what Boomer believes, it's the SAME fight song we've always had. BTW--this was done about somewhere between 10-20 years go by either Dr Hochkeppel, or Dr Taylor.

    I don't understand why we can't cut to the chase here ... why is the new band director not named Boomer? Do we have our priorities in order?

    JK, Boomer seems to be fighting a one man war.

    But isn't it great to have a band thread!

    GEAUX CAJUNS!

    ........In the past some have agreed with my point on the fight song's changing.....the problem with the present one is that the melody or strongest sound heard is drowned out by the other contributing parts..... This main sound in the past was much more prominent and certainly more peppy......the melody was the 3rd of the major chord that had a blasting repetition......that has now been surpassed by the dull run down start.....think about singing the fight song and try it and think about what those 7 first notes should sound like......the fight continues and maybe I can get Brock and his group to lunch at the house now that the flood damage has been fixed....this will solve all!!!

    Do you have any recordings of your original; it would be interesting to compare.
