coin ' Band disengages from ' old style ' learned in high school and learns new formations Pleasing the fans With circles and spirals, flower formations and marches, the Coin ' Band from Raiderland continued to thrill Red Raider football fans with its precision and perfection. Under the direction of Keith Bearden, the 400- member band performed four separate shows in Jones Sta- dium. First was the traditional march show complete with circles, flowers, spirals and the T-E-C-H spellout. Next was the jazz show featuring Chicago ' s hit song " Hard Habit To Break. " The Coin ' Band then switched to Latin jazz for its third show and end- ed the year with the tradition- al patriotic theme. The band traveled to the A M, TCU and Rice games. " We try to do varied styles, " Bearden added. You ' ve got to keep the kids happy. " Bearden also likes to keep the fans happy but real- izes that not every show will be a favorite. " If people don ' t like it (the show), we say ' come back next week, " " he said. Bearden thinks the Goin ' Band made a difference at the Texas game — mainly be- cause of Red Raider and Long- horn band competition. " The Texas game was our best performance, " said Bear- den. " Any time there ' s a visit- ing band, our band wants to give its best performance. " Band practice started one week before fall classes be- gan, and 200 new band mem- bers joined the ranks. " They learn real fast, " said Bearden. " They are real sharp . . . they come from good high school programs. " However, " learning our style is hard, " Bearden con- tinued. " It ' s like going from junior high to high school. They ' re used to playing in a 100-piece band, and now they ' re getting used to playing in a 400-piece band. " They just have to forget the system they learned in high school and learn our system. " Practice week also was fun week; the older band mem- bers served as drill groups. continued on page 124 Gary Nordstrom concentrates on his music sheet while playing and l eeping in step.
