Music Musings: Marching Band Kickin’ It

Even if August doesn’t feel like Fall in Texas, some Fall activities are beginning to take place. Parents are rushing stores for kids’ school supplies and clothing (and hopefully NOT shopping for them at Macys), colleges are buzzing with high preparation, and marching bands have once again taken to the field, or over-cooked parking lot, to their basic maneuvers. For me growing up, August was always the toughest part of the year because of the relentless HEAT. But by September and October, marching band was actually fun.

So in looking forward to the actual football games, here’s some inspiration for all of the hard core band geeks out there. Check out this amazing formation from the University of Hawaii Marching Band. They form a football player, who actually walks down field, and kicks the ball. Cool stuff!
