Rehearsals at Geneseo High School
Times to be announced.
We realize that some of you will have to come a long way. Attendance will help all of us be better but is not mandatory. Stay in touch with your section leader and do videos or facetime if you cannot make it to a rehearsal. We have to know how you,re doing on the music.
FINDING A HORN. We have talked about needing horns and that most every marching band is done now until next late summer for marching band camp. If you can make contact with a local band director and borrow one that would be great. Sopranos/Trumpets you need a Bb trumpet, Mellos a marching mellophone in F, Baris a marching baritone in Bb, and Contra/tubas a marching tuba in Bb. Many many bands have these instruments and probably do not use them for a few months. Connect or reconnect with the directors and see if you can borrow one. (They might be an old corps person.) Ebay has been known to have them for sale too. As a last resort please let your section leader know that you cannot find one and we will try to help. But remember, you finding 1 horn is probably easier than us finding multiple.
December 7 at 7:38am (Gregg Neuleib) received this message from Greg Blum (of Colts fame and Knight’s friend) via Facebook
Saw your post on finding instruments. Here are some schools that may be helpful:
DeWitt Central-purchased 6 tubas from colts. He’s a friend of Vicki MacFarlane.
Davenport Central-Brian Zeglis (past Colt cadets percussion head) teaches that band …
Wilton-Pete Wyatt (Emerald Knights alum) is band director
Scott Lawson-colts Alum @ WIU. Is connected to WIU Alumni band
From Gregg Neuleib:
Attention! (Your heels probably just snapped together didn’t they?)
Because it is a holiday weekend no one would provide a “block” of rooms. That is probably the price we pay for using a good 3 day weekend for travel. www.hotels.com has many rooms available in the Moline/RockIsland/Geneseo area for anywhere between $60-$160 a night. The Moline airport hotels are only 5.6 miles from the Banquet site (Jumers Casino and Hotel) and 15 to 20 minutes from Geneseo. July 2 and 3 are the dates. We also have the large shelter at Richmond Hill Park reserved for the whole day on the 2nd.
