  • Marching down Main Street tomorrow...for the last time

    If you happen to be at the parks tomorrow, be sure to catch the evening Christmas Fantasy parade, as El Dorado marching band (and colorguard) will precede the show for your enjoyment at approximately 6:15.

    Our march this year is the Gallant Seventh, a classic Sousa piece, great because there's a trumpet soli after the trio - and yes I play the trumpet, you can tell which one is me because I don't suck. )

    So stop by, say hi, and like the announcer dude says, "Please give them a warm welcome!" I hear tell that there will actually be three bands performing tomorrow. But if you see teenagers wandering around in baby-blue shirts with something like a vortex logo on the back, those are El Dorado people. So watch out.

    It will be the 10th time (last I counted) that I have performed at the resort as part of Magic Music Days, and it's a little sad too, because I'm almost positive this time will be my last, as this is my senior year of high school. But it's been so much fun. Going backstage is also a little different, too.

    El Dorado HS in Placentia? I graduated from there! My three brothers and myself did! I wish I can see EDHS march down main street ( I was in the band back in my day, as a freshman - played flute)

    Is Mr. Watson still the teacher for the band? Cause I used to see him with his jazz band during swing dancing

    I know you wouldn't remember, but my Dad was chief of police of Placentia back in the day of our high school years - we grew up in Placentia when there was still orange groves (and one right next to the school too - Valencia/Bastencherry)

    Post pix if you can! I'm cheering you guys on from MD!!!! Fun!

        The one and only EDHS, indeed! Cool! And yes, Mr. Watson is still ticking, and he still performs at Disneyland all the time, just as you say, in the jazz band during swing dancing. (As a side story, one time my bando friends and I went over there and saw him playing! Good thing Watson didn't see us, he'd probably yell at us. )

        Yeaah, all the orange groves are gone. Still remember that one right next to the school too.

        Thanks, and fun it will be!

          You can always join a youth band such as Santa Ana Winds or Long Beach Jr. Concert Band. They still march Disneyland periodically.

            Naah, I'm not that desperate. After all, I've had 10 more opportunities than most people ever have to perform. I'm good.




            Spoiler

            (and secretly, I want to quit band after high school)

                Hey, I didn't know you were a bando too! No wonder I like you!

                Have fun 2DieFR, and, depending on where you go to college, you might reconsider not marching anymore. It's awfully fun...just sayin'.

                      No problem, just get on the five year plan!!!! Then, next year if you still want to come back, flunk a class and be a six year senior.

                        Yeah. I just finished up my band season last Saturday, and i was quite depressed this past weekend. I've been doing band ever since 5th grade and did marching band for all 4 years of my high school life. I've put so much into it, finally becoming prez of the band as well! which is tons of fun. I guess a performance on the famous Disneyland parade route is the perfect ending to 4 years of marching band.
