The Grand Marshalls for the parade were Max Carter and Clara Fritsch, Crown Bearers for the Homecoming Ceremony.  Saturday evening was a semi formal homecoming dance, a great way to close out homecoming week. 

Bourbon Band 2018 Show “Paradise Lost” Paradise Lost


   2018 ushered in a shift in reigns for the Bourbon County Marching Colonels. Upon the retirement of Eric Hale, former-assistant director Michael Stone moved into the head director role. Cory Barnes was hired to replace Stone as the assistant director. 

   This year’s program is entitled “Paradise Lost.” The production tells the story of a young captain set out to sea in search of more from life. The opener, a mashup of Niagara Falls by Michael Daugherty and Liquid by Jay Bocook, depicts a storm which throws our sailor off course and deserts him on an unknown island. An arrangement of Evanescence’s Lost in Paradise takes the audience on a journey through discovering the wonders on this strange location. The ballad, The Moon is Distant From the Sea by David Childs, captures the loneliness and isolation that the sailor experiences while stranded. The band closes the show with a Christopher Tin piece, Temen Oblak. The driving rhythms encourage the sailor to rebuild his ship and return home. Accompanied by a snippet of Amazing Grace, the sailor realizes that his true paradise was with him all along among friends and family.
