Some good (ne, great) news concerning Ballou high school. The Ballou marching band and the film Michael Patrei directed about them (previously covered here) have been getting a lot of national attention as of late. First there was this report by ABC's Good Morning America.
Then, on today's Ellen DeGeneres Show band director Darrell Watson was the guest. I didn't get to see the show, but the rumors were that the Ballou students should be ready for a big surprise. If you did happen to watch the show please let us know what happened in the comments section.
