Inspired by The Reisen's thread, I just figured I'd ask - have any of y'all been part of your school's band? I was part of most of the bands in high school (marching, Wind Ensemble and the Pit Orchestra.) When I got to college, I decided I just wanted to march. College Marching Band is generally the equivalent of a 300-member house party every weekend and it was always entertaining to see who came to practice on gameday with the worst hangover. I kinda miss college marching band when the fall sets in. I'll never miss my high school bands, but I appreciate the music education I got while I was there.
