Sunday's Column - Hoover Band

Sunday's column was about my trip to see the Glendale Hoover Marching Band.  It was a first for me and I have to say that I was very impressed with the entire show.  I had expected a bunch of unwilling teenagers murdering Sousa, but instead I saw eight bands execute difficult pieces with tremendous discipline.  The event was very well done and the bands came and went with military precision.  I think some of the music chosen was more to impress the music teachers' peers, but in all it was a great first for me.You can read the entire column at  It may take a day or two for the paper to get the piece up on the site.
