Our son has been in band since sixth grade, and now he’s going to be a senior in college. For many years, we heard things like our son saying, “I need new drumsticks” or another band member might say, “I need Vandoren Reeds.” The high school years were so busy with before school practices, after school practices, football games, parades, and many competitions in the fall. Once our son was in college, though, things came to a stop. We got to see a college football game (and enjoyed half time immensely), and now that he’s in a percussion group we’ve gotten to see two or three of his programs. Great band memories!
