Some time this morning I got word Via Twitter. that The Founder of the Florida A&M Marching 100 Died. All I could do was go “Wooooow!” .. because It Marks the end of an An Era in band that has lasted for Many Generations.
It’s a Sad Day in the Band World. And The Bandheads are sharing their thoughts. So Far, I’ve seen a number of articles and article postings on forums as well as via Facebook with users commenting on his passing.
Dr. Foster is Not only a Legend, But a Titan, One of the Originators of what we know as Show style band Today. He and his band The Florida A&M marching 100 are World Renowned.
It’s the Beginning of a New Era in the Band World folks..
My Thoughts and Prayers are with the Marching 100 and The Family of a Man who has changed the face of Band For Ever.
Rest In Peace Dr. William P. Foster
