My definition of marching band is...not a band who sings for more than 10% percent of their show. Props to the people who are for real.

The good response...

band=life

marching band=what you were put on earth for, and have worked towards all your life.

field show=those 10 mins runs where you become immortal and you perform for the gods

If you were to draw a Venn diagram that had the following specific set circles:

"Music", "Motion", "Excellence", "Sweat", "Pride", "Spirit", "Culture", "Cult", "Community", "Art", "Education", and "Family"

the zone of common intersect would be labeled "Band".

If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.

A marching band is a giant family, which no one inside is going to care what you do, as long as you get what needs to be done done.

It's the friendships that you don't have at the season's start, and the frendships you keep after the season ends!

the above website is really incriminating to colorguard i enjoyed the band deffinitions but if u look at color guard they are very simple minded and generalize to their guard only

Omg flagratgirl, it totally is! I "recommended for deletion" on a bunch of them! Haha. There were some that were ok, but others were just stupid and made it obvious that they weren't in guard. How could they write a definition for something they’re not in?!
