    Son will be marching in MDB

    So thrilled that not only will my son be attending Bama this fall, but he was accepted in the Million Dollar Band!
    We gave up season tickets years ago when we were having babies and have just been buying single game tickets. Looks like we will be going to a lot more games the first being in Orlando! RTR

    Just curious....what's his instrument?

    I know the head of percussion, Neal Flum. He's a great guy. I understand that, like all good teachers, he's demanding. But if your son is a drummer, Neal will make him a better player and more disciplined in all aspects of life.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    My son was in Band in HS. Most people don't understand how hard these kids work. And the expense.

    Congrats from this old band director! I get to teach some wonderful kids and it is always thrilling to see them want to continue their musical life in college. I’ve had the privilege of sending some of my kids from Memphis to march with the MDB and it is always a great day when I get to go to a game, catch up with them before they play, and see them perform!

    Roll Tide!!

    Marched for 3 years when I was in college. I know he'll go to some better bowls than I did.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    Nice! The MDB is a great organization as well as one of the best bands in the country. I hope your kid has lots of great memories from being in the band, as I sure do!
    The Golden Rule for internet postings:

    If you don't have anything nice to say, then say it with class, say it eloquently, and for goodness sake use the English language like your English teacher tried so hard to teach you.

    Congrats!

    "Funny the way it is", but this will be the first year in about 15 years that we won't have a kid in any college band. We've had three in MDB. The oldest during the Shula years.... Not the best of times - but the other two saw three NC's between them.... But regardless, all Three of them loved their time with MDB!!
