So could a guy buy a game ticket and come close to halftime just to watch the marching band and then leave?
I like the tetris part, the running horse and Pac-man towards the end.
Just think a second or three the work involved by all to 1) choreograph this 2) band members to know thier marks 3) play the instruments and read music notes at the same time.
And then next weekend a whole new routine.

That was great, thanks for the link! I have a soft spot for high school and college bands. My oldest daughter was a member of the Marching Virginians of Virginia Tech.

Yep. Even a decent high school marching band can get the adrenaline rushing.
I always liked the song "Tusk" by Fleetwood Mac. By incorporating the USC Trojan marching band into the song it set a record for highest number of musicians to perform on a single and got the USC band a platinum record reaching #8.

It's more than fantastic. This is epic! Especially the animated horse! Shocked Marching bands are getting so much better and better each and every time I turn around, I'm amazed by the things they are pulling off these days. There's one that performed the "Party Rock Anthem" last year.

I wasn't in the HS band but my daughter was. She was color guard. I was one of the band parents who helped out. I have seen them march in mud that would suction off shoes. I have seen them practice each day after school, play halftime and all through the Friday game,get to bed at 12:00 only to get up at 4:30 a.m. Saturday to head out to a competiton that they would not get home until about 1 am on Sunday.I really am amazed at this video of all the hard work.

One of my favorite HS bands is one called Pearl Cohn HS.When they played football against our school they brought their band. They pulled the band bus up to the gate. You first heard the band then you saw the head band member, I forgot the title, come out with a baton. Then they all were playing as they got off the bus. They were the most entertaining band I have ever seen. Even our own band were mesmerized and cheering for them. I really am amazed at this video seeing the hard work they had to do.
