We at N3 World Headquarters and Leaf Sanctuary are long time marching band aficionados. You will generally not find me at the concession stand during halftime when the band is going to be on the field and I always note how they refine their show as the season progresses. This admiration derives from having been perpetually devoid of any musical talent whatsoever.... but I digress….
Saturday at 7:30pm it might be a little nippy out there but if you have never been to the Glow Show Invitational at White Cloud it is truly a stunning spectacle as talented marching bands from throughout the region take to the field and add a little light inspired pizazz to their performances.
This family friendly festival is one of the gifts Band Director (and Mayor of White Cloud) Jamie Denslow has brought to the program at White Cloud High School. This is great fun and you will be dazzled by the imaginative and innovative collaborations of music and light in this highly entertaining show. . But you gotta get tickets so go to the White Cloud Bands Community facebook site and they will tell you how.
The String Doctors have just the prescription for some Saturday night fun as they roar into the Dogwood’s Black Box for some country inspired swing sound starting at 7:30pm.
Led by the uber-talented Joel Mabus this talented mix of musicians extraordinaire have a captivating stage presence. Their music is way fun, their repartee is snappy and the groups personality should fit well with the club-like atmosphere of the Black Box.
While there, check out the work that’s being done to the venue It’s a very cool project and will provide easier access for all who wish to attend.
