I'm one of those persons that can't wait til my hometown high school hosts it's yearly marching band show in November. I often drive to other cities to watch marching band show as well. This year I will make my first trip to the Rose Parade just to watch the Kyoto Tachibana High School Marching Band. I'm a grown adult but I get goosebumps just thinking about seeing them live.

I found marching band performers to be not just great talented musicians but the best athletes out there with the greatest discipline and dedication.

Yes, I go to the football game just to watch the marching band.

And at the Rose Parade this year you will get to see two great college marching bands - Oklahoma and Georgia -

As a current student I hear a lot of other kids stereotype people in band and consider them low lived nerds with nothing to do, When I was in middle school after a drum major competition a lot of other student's would say "ew you're in band?'' after they would announce my placements on the intercom and A lot of other people even say I don't look I am in band and I always say " how do people in band look" and they always respond with " A nerd". From what I've noticed a lot of people quit before high school because of stereotypes. It is getting less popular as the years pass by as well too. I guess these are some reasons why school bands are getting less popular
