        This could be a very cheesy show but I知 sure Carmel will take it to a very sophisticated level

          As they always do. So far I知 not intrigued by any of the top 10ish bands shows.

                  Valhalla is actually referring to Norse mythology . And Valhalla is a heaven-like place in Nordic mythology .

                      Someone with more more ties to the Indiana area bands, or just someone with a lot of knowledge, please explain to me what it is that makes Carmel consistently so good. I know Broken Arrow has the genius, Cartwright, and Avon has the genius, Webb....what, or who, is it that makes Carmel special?
                      If we take it down to the basic level, it's what makes most of the best programs good. Money. The median income in the town of Carmel is over $100k.

                        I would say Michael Gaines, their drill writer. And Richard Saucedo, their music writer. Michael Townsend also works on their design team along with some fantastic directors.

                          Michael Gaines is the legendary drill writer who wrote drill for the Cavaliers in the early 2000s and more recently wrote drill for Santa Clara Vanguard in 2018. Michael Townsend was formerly the color guard caption head at Carolina Crown for a very long time.

                            Don't forget that Saucedo was the Cavaliers Brass Caption Head and music composer from 2000-2008. Gaines and Saucedo may not be the current talked about guys like Cartwight and Harloff, but they're heavyweights.

                            • Also, Rosie Queen directs the color guard, and if I知 not mistaken she works with Bluecoats and founded Bluecoats indoor.
