After a year without participating in marching contests due to Covid 19, the Eastland band was back in action this season. The band's competition show was entitled "Wanted: Dead or Alive" and featured music from "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly," as well as Bon Jovi and composer Luke McMillan. The band used a show themed uniform for most of the season: they dressed as old west cowboys and cowgirls.
The band purchased the uniforms from Greer's Western here in Eastland. The owner, Leslie Pitts, went out of her way to help put together the order and allowed the band to purchase the uniforms at cost. Background props, printed by Bryan's Signs, depicted an old western town (much like the early days of Eastland) as well as a panorama of the cowboy mural from the majestic theatre. Local business names were printed across the fronts of the buildings. This gave this particular show a very hometown feel. Each business represented made a donation to cover the cost of printing all of the props. Businesses represented were Doc's Drugstore, First Financial Bank, Mae's Meat Market, Clint Coffee State Farm Insurance, Blake Fulenwider, and Greer's Western Store.
The band has had a great season receiving 1st division ratings at the Paluxy Valley Marching Competition as well as based in class, 1st Division ratings from all judges at Region UIL, and finishing 8th place in Area Finals out of 26 bands. The Drum Majors this year are Ariel Hernandez, Celeste Rodriguez, and Taylor Clark. The band Directors are Stephen Cox, Jett Lowrance, and Juan Hernandez. Shelley Reinhart is the Colorguard instructor.
