"Its not just New Orleans man, its everywhere. When I see clips of Southwest Dekalb with less than 150 and St Aug with holes in their drill, I get so worried. As a band director, I'm concerned not just for my band but for everybody. I remember…"

Sign of the times.

I'm a New Orleans native and former band member. I consider myself to be a true fan of the marching band phenomenom and of our history and culture that we have all help to build in NOLA. Especially at the high school level because I like to see kids in the process of learning and I believe that is where we may be at our most eager phase to learn. That's why I keep myself updated with what's going on in the high school world of band in the N.O. So on that note I must state this. I have come to…See More

Oh yeah. Our football team was our claim to fame. When I was there, we always went to the dome for the championship to play against the Jefferson Parish teams. I just wish we had a band that was just as hard as our football team. Especially since I was in it! (lol)

i got ur message.1 thing is for sure though..

n the 1970s KARR battled LAWLESS every year for the Jr Hi football title..Kohn stuck n once or twice..KARR had enuff talent & coaching that West Jeff,Landry,OPW and the "NEW SCHOOL" JOHN EHRET wanted the KARR players!!!!

If KARR & LAWLESS were high schools n the '70s,they would've contended EVERY SEASON FOR DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP AND THE PLAYOFFS!!

I forgot to answer your other questions, but I promise these will be much shorter. LOL! St Aug marched in between 160-180 that year, and no they weren't as loud as SU, but neither is JSU. However, Aug's song selection was better, and they were just as clean, if not cleaner. Plus, Aug's version of Lies was much better than SU's version.

What's going on DaOtherPurpleOne? This is going to be a long answer, but to answer your question I would have to say YES, St. Aug gave even SU hell in 1990. Now, I'm pretty sure that some past and present SU bandmembers will say other wise. In fact, most of them will deny the battle between the two ever happened, but I remember it song for song going back and forward. St.Aug played "In the Stone", "I Got the Power", "Lies", "Wild Goose Chase (Who Shall Save the Human Race)", "Tribute to Bob Marley", and "You Can't Even Walk in the Dark". And SU played one of the After 7 songs, "Feel Good", Lies, and I can't remember the rest. But I wish someone would please post this battle, because it would shut up all of the nah-say-ers that don't believe that a high school can make a college sweat. Think about it this way, when I went up to Grambling in 98 for my crab year, I was literally the best B-tone player in the section. If I'm coming directly from high school smoking the entire section, what makes people think a high school band with the same caliber players as myself couldn't hang with or get a college band? Sorry for the long answer, but the answer is YES!
