  • I wish I was in a marching band!

    I recently watched Drumline and I watched an episode of Monster Garage where they had these kids that were in a marching band. Call me crazy but I thought those kids were pretty friggin cool. I kinda wish I was in a marching band back when I was in high school now. I don't think they have marching bands for 31 year olds so I'm probably SOL. I suppose I could pretend march around my condo. I used to do the same thing after I watched Jackie Chan or The Matrix. Except I'd do Kung-Fu and jump off the furniture.

    Drumline is one of my favorite movies. I think people who can do that are very talented.

      k, first off, its cool that you would like to be in a marching band. second off, drumline probably isnt the best movie to watch to make that decision. good movie, but not a very good example of marching band. it is very hard work, make no mistake, but it isnt as terribly competitive, especially in colleges, as the movie pits it to be. it is a lot of fun though.

        You should start a group of 30-somethings that want to march in a band. You could do local parades and march in parks and stuff.

          There are all sorts of drumcores out there... but they are professional... which would make it a little harder for you to pick up. But if you really want to, you could probably start taking lessons and work towards it... who knows?

          I really enjoyed marching band... at my school, we were not made fun of (except in jest) and the football players and such would always thank us for playing at the games (you could tell who was doing it just because the coaches told them to... not all of them were that way.)

          The competitions were a lot of fun, even though I went to a 3A school, and were nowhere near as good as say Pomona or Arvada... there were only 2 schools our size in our district, so we went to state automatically every year... even our first year together (my freshman year). My senior year, I was section leader and backup drum major... and we took 2nd at state to the perennial champions. Had a lot of fun too... played music from Bond movies... I have many memories that I'll never forget.

              I can't play any instruments.

              Do you think that would be a problem?

                  Well not back in HS... but for a drumcore... maybe.

                  There's got to be some amateur ones out there somewhere... or you could become the first one man amateur drumcore ever!
