It’s Marching Band Season!

The weather is getting colder, the leaves are changing, and the pumpkin spice lattes are sprouting up everywhere. It’s fall everyone and you know what that means?  If you said football season you’re wrong my friend:  it’s marching band season, the special time of year where band geeks show off their semi-athleticness by marching around a field for fifteen minutes while playing music they memorized months in advance.

Mashable decided to commemorate this occasion by counting down the “12 Marching Band Routines That Kick Brass.”  I, as a major band geek have, seen these videos multiple times each and must agree with Mashable that these do indeed kick brass.

One of my favorite routines has to be Ohio State’s video game show.  This show combines all of my favorite video game themes such as Pokémon, Mario, Tetris, and The Legend of Zelda along with some amazing sets that just blow my mind.

Of course my favorite marching band of all time has to be LVC’s Pride of the Valley… No bias whatsoever.  One of the main reasons for attending this school was because of the marching band.  The first time I visited LVC I was able to see the band preform their halftime show and I immediately wanted to come here.  Two years later that dream has become a reality.  Check out this year’s show in the video below taken from our latest performance at the Allentown Collegiate Band Festival just this past Sunday.
