DVD's or currently unavailable. If you know someone who can duplicate the DVD's, please let me know as soon as you can.

What People are saying about the DVD's:

"I recently got the 1992 DVD and I must say I am VERY impressed. Good quality, and quite a few shows to see from 1992. I was pleased to see finals considering the drumline (which I was in) abslutely smoked finals. And of course, there was the UOP show where we totally choked that night. I was also please to see our final run through at Mt Ranier. Watching this brought back so many memories of just how fun it was to be in Spirit Of Sunnyvale. I highly reccomend getting the DVD's for any year you marched. I can tell that a lot of time and thought went into producing these discs as they are of the utmost quality. Way to go!!!"

"They are absolutely great! It was fun watching all the great memories I had from my years in Spirit (1986-1992). A few that I recall are the 1987 sectional drill competition where the Clarinets won, the 1989 Alumni Christmas parade, and John Do's great speech at the end of the 1990 season. This is a great way to preserve all of our memories from our years of marching and being involved in Spirit." -- Mickey Helms (1986-1992)

"These are great. I sat fixed to the TV, remembering the fun I had with the band. "Jerusalem" raised goose bumps.... I got a kick out of your video at your (Brad's) apartment putting "Over There" to drill, and then seeing it on the field. Nice touch. ...the final product is something that I will be proud to show my kids." --Jeff Pokorny

Thank you!!!!

I was in Spirit for almost 5 years. It's one of the few events that had helped me through those "teenage" years. I learned how to sell chocolate bars door to door, twirl a flag/rifle/saber, and change outfits during a field show within a few seconds. These were just a few things that I could always use later in life.

Seriously, being in Spirit opened my eyes to the outside world. It has helped me learn to deal with various different types of people and see cool places (Wyoming, Utah!)

I finally decided to put together this site to bring together the few hundred people Spirit has touched. It's neat to know what happened to us all. What we've accomplished, what we did after Spirit. How much do we miss this band (I know I do).

As most of you know, Spirit is no longer around. The members who were in it during the 80's were lucky because that was the peak of perfection. When all our hard work paid off and we kicked Santa Ana's butts (that was to biggest turning point in Spirits history)!! Since I wasn't in it after the 80's, I really don't know what happened. I know that Mr. Hawkins left, Bingo folded, and Spirit was just never the same.

There are now tons of pictures from several people and myself. Thank you so much for sharing your pictures with us!

If you would like your story (or stories) and/or pictures posted, e-mail them to me. If you would like to send it via snail mail, e-mail me for my address.
