Mr. Gerry Nichols our friendly neighbor band director from the Prairie Grove Bands.  He's really into spending time at razorback concession events and karate.  Mr. Nichols also likes riding his motor scooter and showing off his tattoo to family and friends.

Our friend to the Southwest, Mr. Falk.  Mr. Falk left his home in Arkanas to persue his band directing dream in Texas.  He still enjoys going to Concert Assessments and being ejected from basketball games.  Some of Mr. Falk's best friends are referees!

Mr. Bowlin... "The Professor"  at Huntsville. If you can think it or name it, Mr. Bowlin has probably did it first or played drums for someone who did.  He's always playing a gig somewhere in NWA, look him up.
Chris Fuller is our favorite fishing band director at Elkins!  Mr. Fuller holds the Elkins Marching Contest each October and the Farmington band is always more than happy to attend and see what damage we can do the Elkins Football Field for Mr. Fuller!
