Halftime is game time
by Ellen Rebosura
Like the 2002 movie “Drumline” with its stick tricks and showmanship, this year’s Logan High School’s Field Show will be no different. Precision is key to making a winning marching band, and with 28 California high schools competing for the Western Band Association (WBA) championship, this show promises to be as electrifying as a lightning storm!
With almost 3,000 musicians and dancers performing, the James Logan Band and Color Guard of Union City will try to defend their six-time WBA championship in the 4A/5A division with 210 musicians and 55 dancers representing the school with their program "Snakes, Lizards and Dragons."
Logan’s band has represented Northern California in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and the Pasadena Tournament of Roses parade in recent years, and was the sole representative for California at the Edinburgh Easter Festival in Scotland last year.
Ramiro Barrera, director of Bands at Logan, heads the distinguished group who will perform at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for children (6-12 years) and seniors (65 and older). Children 5 and under are free. Tickets will be on sale at the Logan football field ticket booth on the day of the event beginning at 1:30 p.m.
This will be the last field show competition before the WBA championships, and all the bands will be in top form. The competition will promptly start at 2:30 p.m. Be sure to arrive at the stadium early for best seating. Parking is free.
