Default Marching Band Videos

In our city everything takes second place to our school's marching band. Our sports are good but don't stand a chance against our band. Our football team has never won a state championship but our band has won 15 in 27 years and has been runner up the other twelve years. They have performed in front of 40,000 people in Indianappolis, IN at the RCA Dome where they won the national championship in 2006 and have never been below 14th out of 100 bands in all the years they have attended. They have won several regional championships in front of 30,000 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, GA and Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, MO. They have marched for the Fiesta Bowl and the Rose Bowl not to mention two Presidents including Bill Clinton and George W Bush.

My best friends have been in band with me and I even met my Wife through the band. I was a three year member (didn't allow freshman when I joined) and my wife was a four year member. Here a few videos, the first two are my second and third year. The last one is the national championship show!!!

It was hard work as we had various practices throughout the Summer and had full 8 hour practices two weeks before school until the first day. We had practice every day after school for 2 - 4 hours and had 4-8 hour practices on the weekends. It was basically a full time job for us but it can be seen in the finished product.

Not me personally but there is a good one involving a tuba player, icy hot, and his private parts.

I had a buddy who got the nickname Sloppy Joe because he ate Sloppy Joes before practice and got sick and took out half the trombone section and three tubas.

A member of our band who nobody liked kept screwing up at practice and the directors on top of the gymnasium kept stopping the practice and finally said who is that down there? One of the other guys yelled "we can call him bitch sir!"

Here is a cool little video made after Broken Arrow won the National Championship. Shows some shows of the past I was apart of and it emphasizes what an achievement that is. It really warms my heart.

Here are some videos from the Bands of America Grand National competition. Most of these bands are multiple time finalists and some are multiple time champions such as Marion Catholic, Carmel, Lawrence Central to name a few. This year the winning band is LD Bell High School.





I haven't been able to find the 2006 ceremony other than this low quality clip.
