One of the best Military Marching Bands I ever saw was the Jacksonville High School Band under Bob Parsons. This band was eventually the 4A (now 5A) Honor Band; without a private lesson program, BTW. You could close your eyes for a moment and think you were in a concert hall. There were dynamics, phrasing, emotion; extremely musical. You could open your eyes and every foot was placed exactly the same, the lines were wonderful; beautiful execution. I wish every could have seen that group perform. I was really, really impressed. This was before SMC but I'm sure they would have been at the top of the list.
