SPOTLIGHT: JULIAN BANEZ
The show this year at SF Renegades is going to rock.
Last year, I had to learn the entire tenor book and drill in a month after being cut to tenors from snare. I had never played tenors before but I was fortunate for being cut because I found out that I loved playing tenors. It’s so much more fun when you’re learning at the same pace as everyone else. Not having to cram everything in last minute really makes the stress levels go down.
I learned last year to take advantage of the time in between camps to make sure you know everything you’re responsible for, backwards and forwards. It’s so cool to have the opportunity to have a full drumline this early in the season. It means we’ll get even more time to get everything solid by DCI West.
If you’re reading this and play a horn, come out! We need horn players to fill the spots that are missing in this corps. Come be a part of the SF Renegades and help us march a full corps before June!
Congratulations to our very own Brass Caption Head – Chris Nalls for being inducted into the 2012 Bugler’s Hall of Fame!
Hi Members of the Renegades,
I wanted to thank all of you for showing my young boy scouts what a horn line can sound like. Being from the city they have never seen a Drum & Bugle Corps before. I have been wanting to show them a corps live for some time, DVDs of DCI don’t really show it. What you did playing for them was great, something must have rubbed off on them. I know the best Corps didn’t place first. The “judges” must have scored heavy on “cute points” But you should feel good about getting young kids excited about Drum Corps. Good Luck to you and thanks again!
Open has passed and was a success but, if you’re still interested in joining, we’d love to have you. Sign up here
The San Francisco Renegades concluded the season with an amazing banquet held at the Corps Hall (aka Gilman’s place). A great time was had by all. Thanks to all who supported the corps this season.
Looking forward to 2012! See you at Milpitas H.S on January 7th and 8th, 2012 for our Open House!
