Art of the Marching Band

When I was in high school it was cool to be in marching band.  We competed statewide bringing home trophy after trophy. The crown jewel was an invitation to march at the Orange Bowl half-time show.  What could be better than a 36 hour bus ride with a bunch of teenagers.  I remember having canker sores from all of the oranges and grapefruit I ate.

This recent video by the University of Hawaii marching band  brought back some great memories of those marching days.  A pretty impressive routine from someone who is a tough critic of marching perfection.

    OMG. I too was a band geek and even marched 2 years at the U of MN, that’s how I roll(ed). Am oh, so critical of music on the field. Amateurs. I am also of the thought that if there was just a count-off when a red light turns green, we’d all make it through much more efficiently?
