COMP...BRAGGING RIGHTS AND WHY NOT DO IT. I JUST WISH WE CAN HEAR A MUSIC FEST THOUGH AND NOT JUST BLOW BLOW FEST
Idk what the band world is coming to today...bragging rights?? For an allstar band...whatever happened to bragging rights with your college or high school band alone? Idk maybe im just not a fan... but i feel these high schoolers need to get their bands back on point and battle thru the summer vs taking the easy route. Just my opinion

^^i feel you on geting your house in order first....BUT...why not come together and put on for YOUR CITY against others

if people should only worry about their home(college/high school) program..then there is no need for DCI also with that logic......its kinda the same concept just a different style and more expensive...

I find it as a great thing, here's why. I have a cousin who just left Middle School Currently playing in the NOASB .. It's a leveled playing field between HS & College players which eliminates an intimidation factor..

Because ,the high school bands are nothing to write HOME about !!!

i would much rather these kids be in something productive than just being bored out of school.....plus it's something positive and it's a great experience

It all started back in 2010 when a bandsman by the name of Brandon Franklin was killed in New Orleans. His last wish was to have a mass band of the city perform at his funeral. Well, his wish was granted and henceforth New Orleans Alumni Allstar Band was created, along with Houston United Mass Band, Atlanta Allstars, Memphis Mass Band, Dallas Mass Band, Arkansas Allstars, Mississippi Alumni Allstars, and the allstar bands from Alabama and Nashville.

I don't see anything negative behind these programs. Anything that keeps kids preoccupied and off the streets is always a positive in my eyes.

memphis has been doing all-star bands long before he died tho

It's a great thing IMO.. Keeps the students occupied in the summer and gives us some much needed band fixes throughout the summer. And a lot of these high school bands no longer have support of the schools/admin and are going to hell. Especially in Houston, so this gives those kids a chance to be apart of something worthwhile as opposed to being relegated to a rag-tag 20-30 piece band in school. 

I know. Memphis allstar band, LLI, and GHASB been in existence...Im talking about the formation of these mass bands and allstar bands that suddenly created this epidemic

Memphis has forever had a highschool allstar band, but they never had a mass band to include adults until after the crisis though
