    Re: Marching Band Shows!

    hahahaha marching at my school is ... well, we play a new show every week. and i'm arranging the music. we play pop. and it's a ton of fun, and the crowd LOVES it. haha this year we're playing outkast, and madonna and... it's hilarious, and it's a joke. but it's so fun. and we look like crap when we move and play, but the crowd doesn't care.

    We are marching a show called Heroes, the music by Phillip Glass. We march 250+ people, and this year 24 saxes (too many to be honest). The music is cool though. We got through our pre-show and opener on the field. Just two more movements to go.

      That's pretty proportionate for a 250+band. Besides, there are never too many saxes=p

      My high school marching band is doing a jazz-type show. We're playing Caravan, Brazil, and Blues in the Night, and I couldn't be more excited!

      Our halftime is John Williams (Star Wars/Raiders March, Far and Away, Superman, etc). Superman has a sax solo (squeee!) so that's good.

      We're doing Vanishing Point, another Key Poulan show. I loved Divine Comedy (Robert W. Smith), but this year's show has basically discouraged half our band to quit.

        I made a pitch to our band director to do DREAMGIRLS. I love the music because isn't as harsh as most marching music and I have so many little ideas to put in the show.

          the only song i'm absolutely sure that we're doing is "Swing, Swing, Swing" from the move "1941". We're doing it because of our immense sax section, 16 members (possibly with tenors and baris, too, because we dont usually march with them at my school)!!!

            Don't discount Queen, Count--the harmonies are much more interesting than most vintage rock.

          We're doing a Paul Simon show. I haven't heard a full recording of it yet so hopefully it will be good. No sax solos for me though. :(

              okay, i know what we're doing now: "Mag 7", "How the west was won", and "Devil's Canyon". let me hear a "YAHOO!" from anyone else doing a western show! hey, count, are y'all doing "bohemian rhapsody"? cuz i love that one! i bet y'all are playing "another one bites the dust" and we "will rock you". my b-day is Oct. 7; i'll be turning 18. my last year to post in the high school forum! i'm gonna miss it! y'all wouldn't think of me as gross/sick/perverted/nasty/etc., if i dropped a line here once in a while?

                Ya know... I don't understand that rule either. I guess it's to keep nasty old geezers from posing as high school students, but isn't it lying to begin with? We won't be going to any marching competitions, so whatever. But I'm not quitting or anything just because we're not competing.

                Well, I don't consider myself a geezer. I'm 18 and in college as a freshman (duh). Our marching band did an Arabian theme this year.
