KC Band Update 11.7.21

Band Families,

We have reached the conclusion of our competitive season for marching band and as I reflect back on the past 3 months I am so proud of all that we have accomplished. I don’t think it is hyperbole to assert that this is the most successful and highest achieving version of the Tiger Band in Klein Collins history. The students have set the bar high and as we shared with them before dismissal last night, we have no interest in going backwards or paving the same real estate twice. What happens next will be a direct result of the students’ decisions regarding preparation and approach to the season. How we show up on August 1, 2022 will have a massive impact on the trajectory of our next season and will determine if we continue to build upon the success of the previous iterations of the Tiger Band.

For our seniors, the class of 2022, I hope you can look back and have an enormous sense of pride at what you have helped to build and create and Klein Collins. Your efforts and contributions will be felt for years to come and you have definitely left it better than you found it. As you go on to whatever lies ahead for you, remember that you always have a home in the Tiger Band and we hope to hear from you. The successes that have yet to come will be a direct reflection of your time and efforts and are shared by all of us, both current members and alumni. Congratulations on a wonderful season and four years of setting new standards.

Feed the Band

Feed the Band for playoff games is a little different since no one has prepaid for any meals from this point forward. If you would like to have a meal on game day you will need to pay week to week from now until the end of the playoffs. 

  • Participation in Feed the Band is optional and provided as a convenience to you by KCBA. 
  • If you would like to have a meal delivered for you, bring $7 (CASH ONLY, EXACT CHANGE, no checks or cards) no later than 3:00pm on WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 10TH. 
  • The vendor for this week is RAISING CANES. Your meal will consist of a 3 Piece Chicken Strips, Fries, Cole Slaw, Texas Toast, and Bottled Water.
