How do you think the MVSU MGMM will look during the 2013-2014 season?

I feel that Valley did good this past year. What do you guys expect in the future?

I feel they'll be ok, if they continue the growth.  They didn't sound bad at all and their tuba section is always beastin!!!  I just think they had a few control issues (trying to overblow at times).  I think if they round their sound and sharpen their dynamics they'll be one of the top bands in the swac.  Keep up the great work MVSU

Yes my sentiments exactly. MVSU is a great band and if they simply round the sound and have more control and stop trying so hard to be just another loud SWAC band then theyd be like they used to be or just a better MGMM. MVSU Has potential to come back and take over again like old alumni from the school always say.

In my opinion the biggest thing Valley need to work on is their fieldshow(example being jsu homecoming '12). Get a little more sound out of mellos and trombones . Btones , Tubas already killing . Trumpets could be better . They just got to work on balancing and attacks and releases which a lot of bands have problems with. There have been times when I have heard Valley at a parade or game and it seemed like tubas and btones just said fuck it and took over . Lol . But as soon as Valley improve their field show they are pretty much on their way. Already have the power. And they gotta improve their book but . I believe the balance should come with bigger numbers and better instrumentation so that issue shouldn't be hard to fix . Considering marching their in Fall'14

Yea usually when I look at a Valley show it seems to simplistic and Just Im not feeling it. Trumpets who cant scream should stop with the scream attempts and trombones need to come up but I understand they havent had a large bone section in years. But when I get down there in the  fall Im hoping to see a bigger more precise sections with more control. Oh yea I plan on attending Valley State in the fall. I play trombone and enjoy Valley States program.

I feel yah bruh . I would love to see valley with a 25-30+ trombone section and some clean trumpets . But good luck to yah doe bruh w bandcamp and all that coming up . Its a good chance Ill be down there next fall '14. 

Anybody else coming from your school?

Yeah man a trumpet player Just one and Im pretty sure yall got pleanty of people from memphis backing you guys this year cuz yall came to my school (Whitehaven) for the drum battle and they were having auditions that day too. A majority of people back at my school by the end of the year were choosing SU,JSU, or TNSU me I pretty much chose Valley cuz everybody is always raggin on em and I got a full scholarship in the band program. Id rather be somewhere were Im a T-Bone player (ME) and not just another number I hate that shit.

Also I had question about the numbers of the band. Who is staying and who is returning? Who are the current section Leaders? and how many new freshman members do you know of?
