I play snare. :)

Our last show is next week. It's really interesting, it's a mix of regular marching and then some of it is scatter. Our theme is cartoons, so we're playing a bunch of Looney Tunes and Disney music. I love it.

Oh, that theme sounds awesome!
I hate our theme. It's so boring, and half the people don't even know who Copland is. I think our band would play much better if we played a theme we all liked. Last year we played pirates and it was so much fun.

I used to be! :)

I was in colorguard all four years of high school, being co-captain of the flag line my junior and senior years.
And now my friends in marching band here in Gettysburg are trying to get me to join. haha

My favorite field show was my junior year. We did 70s rock songs, including September, Spinning Wheel, and Getaway. it was really fun. :)

I'm a marcher.
But our band marches Military style.
I assume that the rest of you have colorguards and such?
Yeahh,, we've got Drum Majors and that's about it.
So we don't have a theme.
But it's fun.

We don't have colorguard... occasionally the spirit squad does a routine during a song, but that's it.

I like that song :]
It has a cool trumpet song :D

This is my favorite song we're playing
http://www.halleonard.com/common/audio/48019160.mp3
It's called Copland Finale.

My second Favorite is Hoe Down.
I'm going to see if I can find a clip of that.

My least favorite is Appalachian Spring. We overkilled that song.

We had a bass player last year in our band, but now he's playing the xylophone.
He only plays bass for the song Final Countdown now, I think. lol

Our band's on youtube, but we look rather bad because we have our summer uniforms on, so maybe I'll find one in full uniform soon and I'll post that one.

It was cool.

This is my marching band.

Yeah, that last note was really sour... it was a second trumpet player.... I don't think it was me though...I was too excited to play much.
And we sound really bad there xD

And I lovee our cadence.

Just a lil bump.
Today was a game day.
Our team sucked...but our halftime show was decent!
Oh, and my mom brought in a cake for my birthday (even though it's on the 8th) and the band sang happy birthday to me, and a couple of other people whose birthday it was :D

The band teacher hes never in a good mood and is always yelling... He chooses boring songs and they are never my taste... Like you said band isnt for everyone I would quit if it wasnt for the fact that my parent wont allow me to quit my brother had to do it behind my parents backs since they said no and when they founded out he was grounded for a week.

I LOOOVE MARCHING BAND! I play trombone in marching... clarinet in concert. I just learned how to play trombone 1st day of bandcamp this year. I like it though.

Venus (No... not the one from the planets =[)
Gimme Some Lovin'
Time Warp

And will Consist of:

I play snare.
I love our music this year. We have a "Journey" theme.
We play Seperate Ways, Open Arms/Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin', Don't Stop Believin', and we attempted to play Anyway you Want it...but we didn't accomplish that so we don't play it. lol. But I'm in love with the music this year...and we had our Local county bands marching show last tues. and like every one had awesome songs this year. We got told that we were the best band of our size there and either 1st or 2nd over all. Plus...being a senior this year...I'm all about meeting new people, so I definitely was talking to a bunch of random people. it was totally fun.

Okay, marching band rant.
Sorry, don't read if you don't want.
It could offend those of you that have colorguards and march show band syle.

So, yesterday we had marching contest.
We're the only military style marching band in our region.
That means we don't have a colorguard or anything spiffy like that.
We competed, and were practically dying because it was very humid and we had on really heavy jackets and pants and clothes underneath that, plus two pairs of socks, gloves, and a hat.
So we find out we made 3rd in the preliminaries.
Great, right?
Well, about then it's 5:00 and we don't preform again until 8.
So we go and get in line for food and find out the concession people are runnig out of food.
Thankfully, I got my food before they ran out.
So we went back to our buses to eat and get changed.
We're changed and on our way over to the warm-up area.
We're still the only military marching band.
So we go and preform and do great, again.
Then we go and wait for awards to be announced.
We got third, again.
Not bad, but they were juding against.
-Colorguard.
-Drum Major direction.
-and Plumes (i dunno how to spell that, but the feathery things that go on the hats.)
We don't have any of that because
-Militaries don't have colorguard.
-Our drum majors march with us.
-Ours plumes got ruint last year because it was raining at contest and the band marched in the rain.

So we got counted off for not having that stuff.

Also, how is a show band a marching band?
They don't even march.
They mainly just stand in one spot and dance.
And you can barely see what they're doing most of the time.

Sorry.
I'm in a mood.

You spelled plumes right.
But, I'm sorry about the judges.
They're evil.

This is from a competition.
I'm standing on the 50 yard line, in the process of marking time.
I'm sorry the picture's so big.
