so are any of you in marching band? i searched and all the threads haven't been updated for like a year so i was wondering how many of you were.

if so, post a video of your band (if it exists on the internet) and possibly a list of songs you guys are doin this year.

this is the South Fayette High School Little Green Machine Marching Band. (we're kind of a big deal around western PA) we're known for dancing instead of marching and being loud as balls. here's us last year at a Pittsburgh Steelers pre-game show.

this year's songs:

Fanfare/Opener: NFL on CBS Theme/Sing Sing Sing
Steppenwolf- Born to be Wild
Bon Jovi- You Give Love a Bad Name
Santana- Smooth
Guns N' Roses- Welcome to the Jungle
Aerosmith- Dream On
and for our finale- A Tribute to Micheal Jackson

if the mods shut this down cuz they think it's stupid i understand

I'm in the Adrian College Marching Band. This year we're doing an ABBA show with Dancing Queen, The Winner Takes It All, and Take a Chance On Me. I don't particularly care for the show, but it's ok I guess.

I have a bunch of friends in band and this year (my senior year) I somehow got suckered into joining. I'm on drumline. I'm not nearly as hardcore about it like nearly everybody else, but it's alright, at times.

I play bass for my marching band. This year we're doing a Wizard of Oz show with music form the Wizard of Oz, The Wiz, and Wicked. Believe it or not it's actually a really cool show.

I'm in marching band right now. It's pretty fun. I play the trumpet. During the summer we just played 4 songs for the parades. They were alright. For our field show at homecoming, we're gonna play a few Styx songs. No Mr. Roboto, unfortunately.

I was in marching band 4yrs in HS (color guard all 4. captain senior yr), 5yrs in college (3yrs color guard and 2yrs trombone), then marched one season with a DCA corps (switched sections from color guard to baritone). I loved it. my favorite was marching in college. I had such a good time in my marching band there.

Great stuff for a HS.
I've seen some University bands that weren't this good.

In high school I played a snare drum in the marching band. By my senior year I got to lead the band at pep-rallies. We'd practice with the flag girls and cheerleaders the day before and then I'd play everything twice as fast during the rallies and the fat ones couldn't keep up...

I play bass guitar in my school's band. It's kinda weird, my section (aka, me and a guitarist) is called "The Pit." I suppose it's a fitting name.

We're playing:
Rock Around the Clock
I Want to Hold Your Hand
YMCA (meh)
Any Way You Want It

Band as a whole actually turned out to be a lot more fun than I expected, considering my section doesn't have to march and we just joke around most of the time. I'm still kinda disappointed though, the whole reason I was talked into it was this cute girl talking to me about skinnydipping at band camp. The boobs were a lie

2008
Last year, my first year in the marching band. (Sophomore year)
This show was titled "Letters from home" featuring a few pieces by Pat Metheny.
This was also at SCSBOA Championships.
(In case you were wondering, the songs(In order) are: Cathedral in a suitcase, Minuano, Letter From Home, and First Circle.)

Our first show this year was actually last night, so no videos of this year's show are up yet.

This year, we're playing:
Gloria - John Rutter
Homage to Perotin - Ron Nelson
Aspen Jubilee - Ron Nelson
Chorale & Toccata - Jack Stamp

Should be a fun year.
I think it's time for a change.

I'm not a member but the marching band at my school did The Hand That Feeds by Nine Inch Nails last year. It was cool that they picked that, but they totally ruined it.

I was in Marching band for 3 years of high school. I did independant study for my senior year so I could get it done faster, so I couldn't do it that year.
Now I'm going to the community college and we don't have one, which is a total gip.

When I transfer to Uni I am gonna make damn sure it has a marching band.

I'm in marching band at uni. It's so much more fun than high school band was. We did a Steely Dan show for a while, and now we're moving on to a John Williams one. Marching 160bpm + crazy wizard music == hard as shit.
