Seven Horn Pileup

When I post marching band performances, it's usually because they have a clever show. Not this time. This short clip of an unnamed school has a section of eight Sousaphone players. While marching backwards, number two goes down followed by six others. No one was injured, but two instruments were damaged. This kind of thing happened all the time when I was in marching band (not always my fault), although we never had more than one Sousaphone player. (via Tastefully Offensive)

Band kids were the coolest kids in school.

Thank you for the correct depiction of the instrument(s). Tuba get bandied about way too much. Even in A class drum corps where they call the contra bass and tuba.

Yeah, I know the correct name is Sousaphone, but 'tuba' is just a more fun-sounding word.

Personally, I think we should go back to calling the slide trombone the 'sackbutt' again too ... for the same reason.
