I hear ya, I grew up in B.C as well, and since we never had HighSchool Football, we never had Marching Band.
BUT - that's not true for all of Canada. It is popular in Saskatchewan, not sure about anywhere else though.......hmm........but I know this because my Cousin David was big into Marching Band and he was born and raised in Saskatoon, Sask....my Mom went over there to watch a HUUUGE Marching Band comp held at his HighSchool, and his band was a part of it.
I was a very big part of Concert Band. I played the Trumpet from Grade 6 - 12. Now, I play the fiddle.
Great thread! I love Marching Bands, the drums are my favorite :)
