Only a few hours late. So?
My most recent Battle of the Bands was over the classic Leroy Anderson song "Sleigh Ride." The contestants were two school bands, the Oconomowoc High School Wind Symphony from Oconomowoc, Wisconsin and the Longfellow Middle School Symphonic Band from one of a half-dozen places in the US that has a Longfellow Middle School. Two voters, Lynn and Bluebird of Bitterness, were unable to choose between them, which, as you’ll soon discover, wouldn’t have made a difference.
Oconomowoc – 3
- Mary B
Longfellow – 8
Can’t choose – 2
So, Longfellow Middle School would have won regardless of how Lynn or Bluebird would have voted. I wouldn’t have been able to choose between the two bands, either. I’m just proud of all the kids that worked so hard to put on a good show. And, really, that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? So congratulations to Longfellow Middle School for winning and to Oconomowoc High School for doing well in defeat.
Our next Battle of the Bands will be posted on Monday, January 16, 2023 at noon Eastern time. See you then!
