Mr. Goode spent the weekend in Texas, guest of Prairie View University, where he observed and recorded what our East Orange Alumni are doing, as well as checking out opportunities for next year's graduating class in East Orange to audition for Prairie View. Mr. Goode arrived by plane in Texas on Friday, 10/04/13, caught up with the Band at Justin F. Kimball High School in Dallas, TX, where the Prairie View Band was giving a demonstration performance. After the performance the PV Band went on to practice for a future performance.

You can see the storm clouds moving in as the Marching Storm Band moves inside to get out of the rain. See if you can pick out East Orange Alumnus Allan Theodore from the crowd of trombone players. Answer at the bottom of this page.

From the Prairie View side of the Cotton Bowl, there was a good view of the game as well as the Grambling Band, playing in the stands.

The Prairie View Marching Storm Band also played from the stands at the Cotton Bowl. For those who think Texas is always hot, that day was one of the exceptions and the young women dancers were happy they had their "hoodie cloaks" to keep them warm between dances.
