Feste Del Mar Band Review

Saturday the American High School Marching Band participated in the Feste Del Mar Band Review, in San Jose, CA. They had a parade competition and a field show competition.
Getting ready to perform for the judges.

Our drum major is awesome!!!

Their music is from Carmen. It's very peppy.

 American did very well in the parade competition. They won two 1st place finishes, a 2nd place and a  3rd place!! They celebrated with happy cheers, then it was off to get ready for the field performance.
It's amazing to me that so many band members can move around and play their instruments, and they don't collide! 

We have a color guard too!

You can see Riley, row on the right, second from front.

Traveling around, while playing. Can you spot Riley again?

I am pretty pleased with this action shot. Riley, playing the clarinet while moving.

American had a 1st and 2nd place finish in this competition too! Way to go!!!
