    Default Update on the Show

    I read Paul McNeeley's report on the SOTS Forum and it looks like a solid 300+ a bit with a ton of brass. Didn't say much about the drum line and I heard a rumor that there is a case and a six pack of tubas. Sounds like the music is great. What else?

    Ford at one rehearsal stated to Dr. Long that we had 320, if I remember correctly they said that we're the largest SOTS yet.

    320 is the record and quite awesome for sure!
    Now, if you guys will sound like 640, that'll be the icing on the cake!

    I love it when people have to nitpick to find anything bad to say about the SOTS and few people I know have much bad to say unless they are Marching Southerners, so keep up the awesome work guys. I loved it when I read from a gal I marched with on Facebook said she could hear you guys at Wal-mart the other night. That made me feel good. You have to be pretty good to have sound carry that far.

    Aren't the Marching Southerners a group up at Jax State that marches with girly men dressed in tights carrying flags around?
