Thunder and Blazes

The Friendswood High School Wind Ensemble seniors went out with a bang this week at their final concert of their high school careers.  Prepare to be AmAzEd by their rendition of Fucik's Entry of the Gladiators, otherwise known as Thunder and Blazes. You'll likely recognize it from your childhood days as music under the Big Top at the three-ringed circus; our son Jacob is blessed to play trumpet with these talented musicians. 
This Texas State Honor Band is under the direction of Gregory Dick.


  1. Wow! Great band. It brings back memories of my sons in their high school bands. Oldest played sax and youngest played trumpet also!
