    Oh, lord. I miss Marching Band. I was/am a trumpet player. We were state champions in our division my senior year. My freshman year I went from a band of 250 to a band of about 50 in my sophomore year when I moved. It was a shock, but it was good.

    I am a MAJOR DCI Fan. If you've never been to a Drum Corps show, GO. It is spectacular. I would date any man from the Cavies or Phantom any day of the week. *drool*

    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.

    Go figure.

    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 :)

    Super cool! I think it is a great instrument :) I remember when I was in Grade 6, when we got first introduced to all the instruments....all the girls picked the Clarinet and the Flute.....so I picked the Trumpet because no other girl chose it, lol. And it just stuck with me since :)

    I don't know much about Drum Corps, but my Boyfriend is in one and DCI asked him to play for them in one of his shows during the summer.
