Re: Show Band Marching
Funny you should mention Memorial HS. I am a graduate of Port Arthur Thomas Jefferson which became Memorial with the merger of TJ, Lincoln and SFA. The showband style has a long history with TJ as they went to this style back in the early 70s. Showband is actually a variant of military, but with a shorter step and differences in music selections. TJ ventured into corps territory in the 80s, but went back to more of a showband style when Memorial came to be. I dunno how many times I heard our director say "lift your knees, point your toes."
