Ernest Stackhouse rehearses The Marching 101 Band of South Carolina State University

I created this blog for a very simple reason. As I looked around the web I found many sites and pages that spoke about the world of marching bands from a fan or former member’s perspective but not many from a music educator or director’s perspective. Realizing the void of knowledgeable critique and discussion, as it pertains to college marching bands, I decided to create “Block Us Up!”

Block Us Up! is a blog where our followers come for my unique perspective of marching band performances, helpful resources for band directors, fun band related topics, and exclusive interviews with some of today’s brightest and most talented leaders of college marching bands!

So loosen up those bibber straps and pull up your spats because this is going to be a memorable experience for the both of us!
