Take the Field Designs is custom marching band drill/visual design by Adam Nelson and custom arranging/composition by Jesse Chavez


"I very much enjoyed working with you guys. You are so flexible and it was so helpful to have your input even after the show was delivered in its entirety. You followed up and made suggestions when you really didn't have to...Our kids had what I consider the best show concept, music and drill of anyone we compete against in our class...Our judges liked our music selections and how all aspects of the show flowed together well and seemed like they had lots of thought and planning to them...It made for as smooth a contest season as one could hope for."

- Jesus Perez, Director of Bands at Italy High School, Italy ISD, Italy, TX

"The drill fit our band's ability perfectly, and we had the show on the field way ahead of schedule...I really liked our growth this year and a lot of it had to do with the drill and the vision you had for the show. Thank you!"

- Meghan Powell, Director of Bands at Sioux Center High School, Sioux Center, IA

"I quite enjoyed your designs and attention to detail and would recommend you to colleagues in a heartbeat"

- Brandon Kiesgen, Director of Bands at Perry High School, Gilbert, AZ

"I thought the drill was better than the stuff I have used in the past. It was more catered to our band's specific ability level. Any changes that I needed you handled in a timely and efficient manner"
"[the drill] looked fancy and hard but was relatively easy to execute" 

- Paul Levy, Band Director at Oak Lawn Community High School, Oak Lawn, IL
