Band camp has been going on for a while now. They just made all of there cuts so the 2017 band is now formed. Hope that helps clear it up.

How are the numbers? Back up to the original 325? Hopefully more brass than last year.

Vid I saw on Facebook looked/sounded light brass-wise.

That's too bad. It will be another season of them being drowned out by opposing pep bands. Most of the time last season, I could barely hear Tiger Band in the stands.

re: Tiger Band
Definitely not back to 325 members, and the brass about the same as last year.

From the video it looks like the sheet music is on iPads. Is that accurate?

Really wish I would've joined TD when I was in TGBFTL. As a know-nothing freshy I had no clue this place was real

I don't know why you're getting downvoted. Its easy to see the Tiger Band has been a shadow of its former self. I often have a hard time hearing them in the east upper.

re: Tiger Band
According to my son....only 60 trumpets this year. Kinda weak. We had 60 when i was in TB in early 90s and the band size was only 285.

GBFTL needs about 100 more Brass to really fill up a stadium as big as Tiger..........

And most of the non-sunshine pumping GBFTL Alums (Particularly those that are still involved in All-Age Drum Corps or teach marching band/drumline in HS) know that this is a fact.

Llinas better get the numbers back up or he will not be around very long..............

re: Tiger Band
I think you're right about them needing 100 more brass players. I honesty think that woodwinds can be removed almost totally, but that's just the DCI in me talking.

A couple of years back, they actually mic'ed up the band in the stadium. That's the type of stuff UF does with their shite band.
