“Our band experienced a very last-minute drill emergency and Mike was able to create a complete show in less than week’s time! He contributed greatly to our creative concept and helped build cohesion throughout our show.  Mike is responsive, professional, experienced and well worth the price! We can’t wait to employ his drill on the field in the coming weeks plan to utilize his gifted services next season”.

“Thank you soooo much! This looks very nice and achievable. It was well received by our audience and the band made superior ratings in marching & maneuvering and general effect. We have had an excellent year in many ways and the group is gaining confidence and maturity. We participated in the Panama City Beach Music Festival and earned straight superior ratings.”

“If you’re looking for drill that’s functional, artistic, and perfectly tailored for your band, look no further than Mike Gillespie. Mr. Gillespie is professional, extremely easy to work with, and will be helpful with and throughout every aspect of your show design process. He writes award-winning drill that will perfectly express your concept. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my shows.”

“Mike, I love the drill! I supports the drama and depicts the drama! And still keeps our medium-sized band near the audience. I’m just now looking it over with the show in mind. I love this! This is going to be a wonderful musical and dramatic moment for us. Your drill here really serves the drama and I appreciate that immensely. I love it AS IS! Your staging here is perfect!”

– Robert Hunter, Enloe High School

“Enloe band is looking and sounding good for so early. Drill is excellent.”

“Mike’s drill flows from impact to impact with precise attention to staging, visual clarity, integration and musical line. Paying attention to individual step-size and coordinates, Mike’s drill practically cleans itself.”

– Charles Patton, Corps Director, Carolina Gold/South Brunswick HS

“Mike Gillespie can fulfill your drill needs in any type of situation. In our experience we have asked much of him and also given him complete control over the drill formations. In both cases we been very pleased with the results. His timeliness and ability to be flexible during band camp makes him a great deal for the money! I definitely plan on using him as a drill/visual designer in the future.”
