Class A: Got to the contest too late to see all of the bands in this division. Congrats to Effingham. I'm surprised to see Windsor in 3rd.
Class AA: Rockwood Summit - I thought the music was pretty cool. But, MAN I GOT TIRED OF MACHINE SHOWS!!! So many bands (Eville, Collinsville, Rockwood Summit) all did them. I didn't like their visual too much.
Zumwalt South - I liked their show quite a bit. The beginning seemed kind of boring. Some awesome music though!
Highland - great guard!
CLASS AAA: Howell North didn't place, but took two caption awards. Congrats for that. I don't think their show was very enjoyable musically.
Granite- Fun show!
Oakville - I honestly, didn't think you guys were going to place. It's still a good band. I'm just used to the 'old' Oakville.
Lindbergh - GREAT JOB! Awesome band!
AAAA: Howell Central - didn't quite get the show.
Collinsville - machine show. Fun to listen to at points. Not a very visually exciting show for me.
Belleville East - Some cool ideas at play here with 'Control' A crowd friendly show!
Edwardsville - Nice music. I didn't like the extended voice overs much. I felt as thought your visual design was a little strange.
Just me 2 cents. Fun show tonight from all bands!!

Great thoughts and I agree with all of them. A few random thoughts: It was great to have Lindbergh and Oakville there. Really raised the level of competition and I hope they come back for many years. ... more
This was Lindbergh's show. Everyone else just showed up at it. For the first week out, that is about what you would expect... All the bands looked like it was the first week out. Lindy looked to be... more
