2023 UIL Region 10 Marching Band Contest Thread!

Recommended Posts

Here we go again! It's Bandtober and the return of the annual UIL Region 10 Marching Band Contest!

The contest will be held Saturday October 14, 2023 at Port Neches-Groves HS Stadium. The schedule shows 29 bands competing to earn that coveted Division 1 rating and the chance to move on to state competition.

Admission is $5 to get in.

I still plan to attend and record all the bands. If y'all want, come say hi to me as I battle the weather elements and try to get the best video/audio recordings of our local high school bands.

Once I get back home, I will start to edit the video and audio, then post onto my YouTube. The day looks to be pleasant with a cool front passing the day before so hopefully I will not be a sweaty mess at the end of the contest. 

I believe this is the first official year since 1990 (not counting the post-COVID time), that ALL classifications will advance past region to area/state competition.
Keep in mind that we have separate open class (contemporary-style) and military class tracks for state marching band contest.

Some of my thoughts:
- One school missing from last year (2022) includes Newton.
- Lamar University will be performing twice for exhibition.
- Beaumont United and West Brook High Schools are competing back as Varsity Bands, so they will be able to advance to the Area round. 
- Currently we have 3-2A, 9-3A, 12-4A, 3-5A, 2-6A bands participating.

Best wishes to all participating bands as they finish learning their music/drill and polishing up their shows in the next week.

    • Yes you are right they did qualify for 7 on 7 sate tournament, Texan live has a free event posted today outlining all the teams.
    • Anahuac will be much better than some of those listed in the top 25. It will not take long for them to be ranked. 
    • Slightly more black than white in Section 8.    This is the hidden content, please Sign In or Sign Up But that’s completely understandable based on the percentage of single parent households  in those respective communities. 
    • How does the doorman’s decision make Trump a racist?
    • But this is the type of thing I’m talking about. Are black people to stupid to get a photo ID? That’s what liberals would have us believe. Requiring everybody to provide a photo ID when voting is discrimination towards blacks? Gimme a break.    It’s a proven fact that black people commit the majority of violent crimes in America, despite making up only 13 percent of the population. But racism is the reason that there are more black people in jail for committing violent crimes? Duh.    The majority of individual wealth is comprised of our homes… but it’s exceptionally hard for single moms of any race to achieve home ownership. When 75% of AA kids are born to single moms, it’s not surprising that more black kids grow up in rent houses and apartments.    I know a young man that dropped out of high school, got arrested a couple times, has three baby mama’s did some actual time, likes to smoke a lot of weed, has neck tattoos and can’t speak the King’s English. You’d say “well, that’s institutional racism, the legacy of our original sin of slavery, and the effects of growing up in poverty.” I’d say, “hold up… you’re completely wrong-this kid is white and he’s just an eff-up.”  But you give no possibility to the idea that a lot of problems are self-inflicted, not the ol’ racist boogey man.    And there wasn’t a current racist policy in that article. There was a lot of conjecture on the part of the author, trying to pin outcomes on racism, without a single shred of evidence, other than the outcomes.    Racist laws and policies against minorities have been illegal since 1964. You can’t point out a single policy that’s discriminatory to minorities in 2024. Racism is imagined at this point.
