The Mighty Indian Band Fall Show

This year the Mighty Indian Band will be performing the show Alien Invasion by composer Luke McMillan.   Band Director David Robbins states that the band has a long-standing relationship with McMillan.  Mr. McMillian began professionally writing music in 2005 while directing the Wylie “Pure Gold” Marching Band in Abilene, Texas.  Under his leadership and while playing his music, Wylie advanced to the Texas State Marching Competition.  Mr. McMillan began composing music full time in 2015 and is passionate about making music for small-school marching bands that is innovative and fun to play.

This year’s show, Alien Invasion, is a recent composition that has helped take another school to the UIL State Marching Competition.  Mighty Indian Band Director David Robbins feels like the show is a great fit for our band, “Even still Mr. McMillan edited the show to make it an exceptional fit and meet our band’s needs.”

Alien Invasion is a Sci-Fi inspired adventure designed to show the listener an out of this world experience performed by Frankston’s very own talented young musicians.  With the Mighty Indian Percussionists driving this ship and the full ensemble setting an eerie other worldly scene, this show promises to entertain.

The Mighty Indian Band will be performing Alien Invasion during the Frankston Indian Half Time Show and will bring it to competition in October.
