PLEASE NOTE: I was back on Saturday to be with SMB (and those stepping out from SMB) as MSU earned its trip to Indianapolis with their win over Penn State. I, just before the Ohio State game, received an inquiry from Ed and Karen Crockett, photographers of the Ohio State Marching Band and good friends over the years, asking if they could help. They shot a number of pictures of SMB and have passed them along to me. You will see them as the SMB2015 at Ohio State directory. It meant so much to have them reach out like this to offer their services.

Earlier this year Jan and I were not at the win over Indiana, the BIG win in Ann Arbor, the win over Maryland and were not able, due to health, to travel to Ohio State. My wife has an on-going medical matter that is being dealt with and is now home but with a road yet to be traveled. This has been such a difficult year and I would much rather be on the field with the Spartan Marching Band. Also due to my father's death, in September, we were not able to be at the Central Michigan University game. Thank you for your thoughts during these difficult times.

Taking 'on the field' photos of the Michigan State University Spartan Marching Band (SMB) since 2004 we are starting our 12th season. Currently this SmugMug site has pictures from 2004 through the galleries for this 2015 season. Be sure to check, in addition, to an overview gallery for each game (those pictures are not in the other sections) to the individual sections. There are also pictures of the Spartan Alumni Band (2008 does not have an 'Alumni' gallery due to weather).

File names are the key to determining the game. As an example JGA breaks as follows: J is the camera used, G is for 2015 (if you look back at 2014 you will see F in this slot) and A is the first 2015 game (at Western Michigan University).

2015 Gameday image names begin with:

at Western Michigan University .. IGA, JGA, SGA, YGA
Oregon .. IGB, JGB, YGB, ZGB
Air Force Academy .. IGC, JGC, YGC, ZGC
Central Michigan University .. we were not at the game due to my father's funeral
Purdue University .. IGD, JGD, YGD
Penn State .. HGE,JGE

I hope this helps and if you have any questions please email me.
