Re: Pre-Show Rationale
Here’s my pre-show…I play some pre-recorded music through the sound system that sets up the theme of the show. I started last year because the show we used came with it. All of our judges commented on appreciating the pre show setting up the mood. So I did it again this year. No marching, no playing, just music while they moved to their first set.
I know other people do other things, sometimes it’s bands that have a BOA length show that doesn’t fit in the 8 minute timeline of UIL, other times the arranger wrote it in. I have seen some pre shows that were too elaborate for my taste, or took too much effort…but I saw those at State, so I’m not really get judgy on a band that made it to State.
