Its all truth already
That was excellent. I'm showing this to my students Tuesday. I'm even more impressed with those band directors in the New Orleans area and what they provide/teach their kids. Appreciate the email notification too Bandhead/Mr. Cousins.
I only sent one of those notifications @ Mr. Clarence D. Brown Via Richard Barber the director of the movie.
That thing was Monumental. There were so many things that i have constantly explained written here about N.O bands that folks never understood. now they see it. and it means alot to our bands. this was needed. it validates what it is All our bands do..and have done,
For Instance .. the guy who said "Kennedy was the best Band" and the kids stated "well kennedy don't exist now".. <-- I attended Kennedy so that was a proud moment for me!
otherwise EVERY new orleans band, even those who were not part of the documentary was represented in this film. I loved it
Man this was an amazing documentary. It had everything. Richard Barber has accurately told the experience of the New Orleans Band Community.
