After a fun performance involving dancing and drumming on trash cans at Indiana State Fair Band Day, Scott said the mission was accomplished.
"We try to give people a little exercise by getting up and cheering after sitting down for awhile," Scott said. "Having fun is our biggest priority."
"That's the first time we've used trash cans," Scott said with a laugh. "But I think it worked out well."
"There weren't any glaring mistakes," he said. "There's always stuff you can do better, but I think we did well and I'm very confident about the performance."
The soon-to-be senior agreed with the director that having fun is what the band strives for.
"We love to dance around a little bit and get the crowd into it," Hubbard said. "It's nice if we can place well, but our biggest thing is to entertain and I think we accomplished that, too."
He said the fun, crowd-friendly performances are also a way for the band to give back.
"We have a lot of great support from our boosters and parents," Hubbard said. "So it's always fun to do well and entertain."
