Just because he was briefly employed at Michigan makes him exempt from criticism? His transition was a mess. He forced a number of people out and told one of my friends that she was a "cancer to the band". He threatened, yelled, insulted, and went on tantrums. That's just what I saw, but you may have had a different experience, but calling him a dick is not an exaggeration.
But really his biggest problem was treating the MMB like some DCI group. We were not music majors, and he had overly complicated music and unrealistic sets. No wonder sound production and formation quality dropped off since Nix, his shows were not realistic. And it was an embarrassment that the band had to be microphoned under his tenure, it never needed to be before. I don’t think you are aware of all the issues with him. But I think we can both agree that this new direction with Pasquale is much better.

I don't care if he reads this blog or not, the guy was a dick and he didn't understand collegiate bands nor the purpose of a band at a football game. His tenure was a disaster, most people hated him, and it is no coincidence that the band is so much better now that he is gone. I know a lot of other band alumni were holding off on donating until he left, I wouldn't be suprised if more money comes in and more people join.

You guys should also visit the Michigan Marchin Band on Elbel field. You'll have lots of tailgating in that area and some great music too! Gameday rehersal is from 10am-12pm, but people always get there early.
I love my #eating hoodie and I hope H.O.P.E. continues to do well!

We only got three inches here, and everyone went nuts. It does take Purdue forever though to clear the campus.
