    Hello gazundteit,

    I am actually flattered that you respect my opinion enough to ask what I thought. Do I know you?

    As far as the contemporary groups. It is very difficult for me to make an opinion with so many good groups present. Most drums were excellent but some were definately better than others. I think it was almost and even toss up between The boyz and Black Lodge. Though the Boyz definately had more volume, and hit the drum harder than any southern drum I have seen, their songs lacked the melody that blacklode has produced. I think Bear creek was very powerful as well and should have placed very near the previous two mentioned groups and htey did. As far as politics, I thinks Black Lodge will always prevail here. They are just plain nice people. I have had nothing but good experiences with that group. I even sang southern with them once, it was comical. I doubt that any ballot riggin is taking place. Treat people with respect and it will come back to you. If some other groups would build relationships with people as they have, they may stand a better chance. I dont think northern wind sounded as great as I have herad them in the past so I think their placing is fair. I think the rest is pretty much on the money. I recorded over 10 hours of singing this past weekend and have had the chance to listen to all the groups over and over.

    As far as original:

    I would have ranked battle river first with Little Otter a close second. High Noon has been stronger and didnt impress me as much this weekend. They would have followed. Whitetail sounded strong but went flat during a few of their songs. They are almost getting a contemporary sound. Eagle Flight, though they dont produce explosive volume, definately had the original sound dowm. They sorta remind me of mandaree. I would not have placed Little Eagle in the top 7. Just my opinion, I may be biased. I barely recorded them. Dakota Nation should have been in their as well, just not sure were.

    I'm sorry about the lenth but you wanted my opinion and that is exactly what this is.

        Hey powwow committee!

        Why don't you just invite the certain dancers, drums, and head staff that you want to pay?

        If you look in your program booklet you see the same dancers names every year since 95. It's gets a little lame. Sure they are great dancers but there are other...

        YB at G.O.N.
        by lookin4stuff
        Do you think Youngbird was the best sounding southern drum at G.O.N. this year? Was this political because of family involvement? Did they deserve to repeat? Is winning really a reason to tear up and get drunk? What about YB's backup singers winning? sounded very nasal to me! What are the thoughts...

        Sound System Issues
        by Wakalapi
        It seems to happen at about every other indoor Powwow I go to in Western Washington. The drumming and singing is balanced when you stand at or near the drum, the singing is beautiful and strong, but when you get to the other side of the arena the PA system sounds absolutely HORRID. I was at the First...

        Edisto River Singers
        by nativegal
        I was just wondering if everyone has heard of Edisto River Singers and what they thought of this group? (ex. them as people, their singing, them as a group, and what you think of their knowledge of singing.)
