Putting the Cool Back in Marching Band (like it ever left!)

April 5, 2011

I don’t know about you, but I get such a kick out of OK Go’s music videos.  They always have such a fresh, creative element in them.  This one is no different, featuring the Notre Dame Marching Band.  I suppose this would be a good time to share with you that for all 4 years of High School I had the privilege of being in Marching Band.  And yes, we did cool formations and marched in parades.  And I was extra cool because I played the clarinet and got to play the melody (which I thought was a lot more fun than the sustained notes the low brass always had to play – no offense low brass players, just not my thing).  So there, now you know another piece of my fascinating history.  I so wish I had a picture to share that would make this visual complete.  Alas, they’re all packed away…

Have a good day all and get ready for tomorrow’s post about my recent experience with energy healing!

    I’ll have to find a picture, I know of one my mom took at the indoor marching concert as well as some parades on our trips. Such good memories, I should scan some in and share. And the trombones get good parts too, and at least you can hear us :) Those clarinets are so quiet!
