Awesome! You guys look good. May I ask however, do you guys technically consider yourself a Show band? It looked like it to me, but there were some military-like fundamentals that were seen throughout the vid. Especially at 6:39.
Other than that though, I loved the music. My old fart band directors wouldn't let us play music like that in a million years. :lol
Sweet! I'm in marching band to for the Sioux Falls Lincoln High school band. The best in the midwest they say. We've been all over too. Rose bowl, Macy's Day was last year. (We led in the parade for the bands last year).
I've been in Marching band for 11 years: 5 with High school (one while I was in Jr. High) and just got down with 4 years with the Purdue "All-American" Marching Band (( Had to say it that way)) I got to go everywhere in college for away game and bowl game and even went to Beijing China before the Olympics. I loved my time in marching band. It is very hard to explain to people who haven't been in a marching band before means to its members. You get so much out of marching band because for one it is a lot harder than it looks. You learn so much about team work and setting a high standard of excellence. The DCI World Championships were this weekend in Indy and it was awesome. Like they say marching band members are the "Athletes of Music"
TO all members still in High School band or music programs: DON"T STOP!! If you can continue in college. It is a the best place to make friends and be involved! You won't regret it!
Actually other than the drum line, the horns are different than marching band.
There are no woodwinds, only brass instruments. We have baritones(mini-tubas), Sopranos(They look exactly like trumpets, but are slightly different sounding), Mellophones(sort of like a trumpet with a giant bell), and the contras.
Not my favorite corp, but they have impressive drill and other visual stuff. Its actually really hard to find good clear videos on youtube, a lot of corps don't post them so their competition cant use them.
A little bit off topic, but if anyone has a toxicity by System of A down marching band arrangement, could you PM me? Also if you would happen to have the Halo theme or anything else that's a good Rock song
