Three Ascension Parish Bands Perform at Showcase of Marching Bands Monday, Nov 9 2009 

Saturday, November 7, 2009, Ascension Parish had a strong showing from their parish.  Three of the local high schools, Dutchtown, East Ascension and St. Amant competed in the Showcase of Marching Bands at ULL’s Cajun Field in Lafayette, Louisiana.

All three bands had excellent performances.  It was such a pleasure to watch our Ascension Parish band students excel in what they do.  The crowd loved what they saw!

A huge round of applause is needed for all of the band directors, students and parents.  All of your hard work certainly showed on Saturday night.  I personally thank the band directors for their dedication and genuine care of the students that they teach. You have inspired these young people to excel at so many levels.  Each of you are truly special.  I also would like to thank all of the parents that help the bands.  Without the help you all give, much of this would not be possible.  From the bottom of my heart…THANK YOU.

It is no secret that I am a St. Amant High School Band Fan…  I have a special interest there. With that being said, you can click the video below to view the performance of the St. Amant Golden Gator Band.

I will monitor YouTube and as I see the other schools performances uploaded I will provide a link for those as well.

Ascension Parish Band Night 2009 Monday, Oct 26 2009 


Come out to Dutchtown High School for Ascension Parish Band Night!

This annual event is free to the public. (Although, donations for the bands are accepted :))

The middle and high school bands will all be performing for your listening enjoyment.

The High school bands will each get to present their half time shows.  If you haven’t seen a high school marching band half time show lately, you will be surprised in how the marching bands have progressed over the years.  Ascension parish holds some of the best marching bands in the state!

This event is usually held at East Ascenion but because of some field conditions we will be entertained at Dutchtown High School.  The event starts at 6:00 pm on Tuesday October 27, 2009.  See you there!
