Congrats to Impulse!

Post by Bandmaster » Thu Aug 10, 2006 11:20 am

I can't tell how proud I feel when I see how well Impulse has done so far at DCI Championships in Madison. They just scored an 86.150 in the Division III Semifinals and lead the pack into the Division II/III Finals on Saturday. The director and assistant director of Impluse are both my former kids, members of The Sound Machine Youth Band. Impulse Director, Ike Jackson, played quads and bass drum for The Sound Machine from 1991 through 1993, played bass drum for Blue Devils in 1994, and then came back as our assistant percussion instructor in 1995. Assistant Director, Kendall Crawford, was Sound Machine's award winner Drum Major from 1986 through 1991, and was on our staff as marching instructor from 1992 to 1995.

I have to keep looking for a close up shot of Ike, but here is a great shot of Kendall back in the good old days as SM's DM.
