    Groveton HS, Fairfax County, VA 1967-1969, uniforms that made us look like something out of pre-WWII Germany. Great band, though, very tough literature.

    Hayfield HS, Fairfax Co. as well, 1969-1971, OK band but great, life-long friends. Gave me my break into solo chair territory.

    Claxton High School; Claxton, GA. Marching band and concert band; 1994-2002. Best years of my life. My old band director died a couple of years back. He was amazing. It was a very sad day and he will be missed. Thanks for all those good years Mr. Simmons.

    Gregory-Portland High School 1988-1992. Great program that has tradition and prides itself on its ability to do more with less.

    Went to Reynoldsburg HS and graduated in '69. Great band then and now. We were not a competition band but they are now. My daughters are both in the current band. They marched in the Queens Parade in London on NY Day 2 years ago. Was an awesome experience for them.
