Sep 27 by Paul Katula ... During the opener and during the percussion movement, the band is basically standing still, slinging flags, and performing some swinging dance steps. Some dancers clearly had more enthusiasm for the dance than others. As the second movement opens, there's an introduction followed by a sousaphone line, which was awesome, by the way (they must have a good sousaphone teacher in Bensenville), but the visuals need to match the music. During the introduction is a good time to get the band moving, not to stand in place. It goes a little against the corps tradition to stand in place during a percussion solo and dance. Fenton here, I think, is borrowing nicely from show-style bands, and their take on it was entertaining and effective.
