being a part of a Marching Band Drumline is one of the most fun things you can do. rocking out cadences sounds amazing and you won't meet a group of more fun people to be around with. especially during a drum off.

This month is the 25th Anniversary of Michael Jackon's 'Bad'. Ohio State University took this into consideration and debut a performance on the 19th of October. A sight for sore eyes.

Annually and at the end of the marching band season (which runs from usually early June through early November), a state competition is held at a major university's football field. Competition bands are pre-separated into groups based on the size of their school, and given the labels of "One A" through "Five A".

Pikeville High School Marching Band, Trombone/Horn line

Most marching bands consist of woodwind, brass, percussion, and color guard. In certain cases with smaller bands, it is appropriate to eliminate a woodwind section and assign members to achieve a "brass band" sound which carries much farther.

Who: In marching band, there's two groups of people: the band, and the color guard. The band is made up of drum majors, section leaders and general instrument players. The color guard has one or more captains in addition to spinners. Guard members can spin flags, rifles, sabres or air blades. What: Marching Band is an irreplaceable passion for many. Where: Marching Band has college and high school levels, as well as independent. Performances normally take place during halftime but competitions and other shows can be performed anywhere. When: Fall season is football performance season, winter is usually competing season, spring is parade season then summer is all about band camp! How: Marching band performances are becoming more frequent because of their rise in popularity and interest by the public. The style of music, executed field formations and overall visual performance is loved by many.
