Okay, my post title sounds a little intimidating, but it isn't. We had a Pep Band gig today that was payback to Owings Mills High School for allowing the band to practice there during Raven's training camp (the Raven's practice facility, where we usually practice, was being used by the team). We played a little before the game, then performed the Star Spangled Banner, and watched the game until halftime, where we performed after their cheerleaders did a routine. They were really appreciative, but I think I'm spoiled - games at the Ravens' stadium are so normal for me now, it made the relative quiet of the high school game really awkward. Rooting for the home team was odd, too, since there wasn't a stadium full of energy to back it up.
There's talk about next year bringing the entire band and doing a halftime show.
