    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.

    Oh that's cool :]
    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

    i play clarinet and this year we're doing a western show.
    i didn't think that i would like it, and neither did almost everyone else but it's actually really cool.

    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.
