“Woe to those who rise early in the morning, that they may run after strong drink, who tarry late into the evening as wine inflames them! They have lyre and harp, tambourine and flute and wine at their feasts, but they do not regard the deeds of the Lord, or see the work of his hands.” (Isaiah 5:11-12, ESV)

Emerald Regime Alumni Marching Band 2009

I marched with the Live Oak Emerald Regime Alumni Marching Band in the Morgan Hill 4th of July Parade this year. We won 1st place for Adult Band, which is encouraging, but it was more rewarding to see old friends and catch up with each other a bit. We hung out after practices chatting and having fun. My friend Dan Hirschler visited from Rippon, CA and even stayed a couple nights at my place. One of the trumpet players, Ernie Molina, visited from Washington D.C. where he’s a now an immigration attorney for the government. And there were many other stories from old friends.

But let’s get serious for a second, it’s all about the music! wink I do wish we played a few more songs, and there are plans for more songs to be added to the repertoire next year. Meanwhile, watch a few of the videos and pump up the volume—-marching band music is meant to be loud!
