@Blue Marker, I agree and I'm glad that I'm not the only one who thinks highly of this band. I've sat in the bleachers and watched them practice many times, in ALL kinds of weather. these people work very hard and the results are clear. Hats off to the GREATEST MARCHING BAND ON THE PLANET! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!

Congratulations to a fine person. Dr. Pasquale will bring his infectious enthusiasm to the marching band. The campus bands will miss you.
