That’s really cool that your guard uses real uniforms meant for guard. I feel bad for ours sometimes because they usually wear ensemble type costumes and the only really guard uniforms aren’t even that colorful or cool. Maybe someday.
I play baritone and I’m band captain of a 200+ size band. We’ve lost a few and gained a few. It’s been pretty great. We’re getting our closer on the field now and it’s been great with music. Our show is titled, “All Aboard” and it features songs with ‘Train’ in the title. Last year I helped come up with ideas for a good opener and we decided on opening with “I’ve been Working on the Railroad”. So far there is a lot more power in our sound than last year!
Thanks for letting me hear about your band! It’s exciting to imagine all the benefits of being in a smaller band! I wish you guys the best of luck this season!
