Welcome Southerners!

Greetings from Dr. B

Hello Southerners!

In just a few months we will all be back together creating the 2013 production “One More Time!” The show design is coming along wonderfully. I am so excited about this “Classic Southerners” — in your face — type show! I think that our fans are going to LOVE it!

As you prepare for the upcoming season, remember to eat healthy and stay in shape. The better shape that you are in, the easier camp will seem. Our closer has been written at a FAST tempo, so prepare yourself! It is going to be VERY high energy!!!

For all of the “new folks” entering The Southerners this year, please try to memorize as much of the stand music as possible over the summer. This will really pay off when you arrive at camp, since the first year requires you to learn/memorize so much new music. You can download all of the stand music by clicking here. Vets — those of you that need to brush up on the memory work of the stand tunes this summer, please do so.

As we start to write the drill/visual program, the MOST IMPORTANT thing that we need everyone to do is REGISTER FOR CAMP. We must have your online registration in order to prepare for camp. EVERYONE needs to register — even vets! You can register online by clicking here.

I am so excited to watch you all bring “One More Time” to life. I think that this is going to be a dream-show for all Southerners — young and old! I know one thing… the ending is going to send people over the edge — and BRING THE HOUSE DOWN!

Have a fun and safe summer. I am looking forward to seeing you all at camp. I can’t wait to hear “Stars Fell” and “Salvation” echoing throughout campus again!

Blow Southerners!
Dr. B

PS. Make sure that you complete and submit online band camp registration today!

From the Colorguard Coordinator - Mr. Rodney Bailey

We are very excited about the 2013 edition of the Marching Southerners. The flags and uniforms have already been designed and we are now in the final stages of mapping out the visual program.

Those of you who are selected for the 2013 Marching Southerners Colorguard and are incoming freshmen will be attending freshmen orientation this summer. You will be told that you must sign up for STU 101. I am one of the orientation advisors for JSU and will be teaching a section of STU 101. When registering, feel free to sign up for my section. The time in which my section will meet will be given out during orientation. Also, you might want to make sure you sign up for an early orientation. That way the chances of you getting your first choice of classes are greater.

If you have any questions about orientation or any colorguard related material, please feel free to contact me at rbailey814@gmail.com.

From the Drum Majors

Hello Southerners!

The drum majors as well as the section leaders would like to welcome everyone to our upcoming season. We have an incredibly exciting year ahead of us and we hope you are just as ready to get started as we are. The show this year is a blast from the past as the unmistakable Southerners traditional sound and excitement will be sure to keep you on your feet. Get ready for an exciting new atmosphere as we welcome our new Head Coach, Mr. Bill Clark. Our show entitled “One More Time” will take us to soaring new heights as we revisit the past and journey in to the future! This will be one of the most exciting and intense shows for Southerners as we highlight our traditional roots by showcasing 57 years of tradition. We will also have the opportunity to lift up thousands of students throughout the semester. This is sure to be a year to remember!
