There are less than 2 WEEKS until State Championships. I need your dedication and commitment to make our run to States go Smoothly and Productively. Please continue to sleep well, eat healthy and Hydrate! Count on significant outside time and almost always moving and playing. Take care of your chops! Water bottles, bug spray and DRILL SHIRTS!!

In order to compete with the best 4A bands in the state YOU must believe that WE need a Laser-Focus on Discipline, Characteristic Sounds, Amazing Blend, Kleen Beetz and MORE AIR!! I’m having fun getting better every day with you, and now it’s time for you to hold yourself accountable. RESPECT yourself, RESPECT the bandroom, RESPECT your director and staff.

FRIDAY: Senior Night Game vs. DeSoto HS!!

We will honor the graduating students who have been a part of our band family this week. Once the last senior has walked across the field, the band will play the National Anthem and Fight Song. Seniors will immediately go to the trailers to take pictures with their families and then Mr. Lambert will join them for a few shots while the rest of the band moves into the stands.


Band Parents attending MUST pay admission. Athletic parents have been told the same thing.

Senior night activities may be shifted to halftime. AD Shawn Trent would really like to make this happen because of the large senior class in all of our groups this year. I will have final determination tomorrow after a final conference with him. I will send out a follow-up email IF there is a change. THE RECEPTION WILL STILL HAPPEN AT 5:30, PICTURES WILL STILL HAPPEN DURING 1ST QTR.

SATURDAY: Mustang Music In Motion FMBC Regional!!

Every November Our parent association LRBBA, along with the friends and families of our program pull out all of the stops to host one of Florida’s premiere band competitions. This year will be no different. Saturday’s event looks to be awesome with 13 performing groups! Invite everyone you know to support the event.

It is one of our biggest fundraisers!

Sign Up Sheets for NON-Marching Band Volunteers and Marching Band Set-Up/Tear Down Kids are on the band office door. Those students help to serve as band guides, judge runners and helping hands to the LRHS directors, parents and alumni who run the show. I am looking for 12 (6 pairs) Mustangs to be Band Guides and several more to assist with other duties – sign up if you want to be a part of the show! 12 Community service hours will be given to those students involved!!!

A set up crew of 10 LRHS Marching Band students will assist me with the preparations and tear-down needed to transform our campus into a show site. A Pizza Lunch will be provided for this crew immediately following our Morning Rehearsal. You can expect to be dismissed by 2:30pm.
