Rolling Marching Band

Marching bands are pulled along on carts

Anyone who has ever been in a marching band knows how much work it is, and how hard marching is. My idea is to have small groups of marchers standing (or even better, sitting) on carts pulled into the shapes of the drill on the field. The carts would be pulled by lawn tractors, and so the musicians could concentrate on playing their music instead of making sure they're in the right place, on the right foot, in time, etc.

       I was hoping for a band hanging inside a great big rolling wheel...   

       Someone did a cardiovascular study one time of a tuba player during his drill. Turns out that one 10-minute show is was the equivalent of a good 45 minutes of aerobics.

       Marching band is supposed to be fun and energy using. Being pulled in a cart is not able to be called marchng band. Anyone who thinks otherwise should not be in band

       If you play in a marching band and can't keep in time with the huge mo'fo of a drum that's perforating your eardrums, you should probably give up your musical career. Keeping in step is also a piece of piss. I'll explain slowly and carefully. When. Thur. Druum. Goooes. Bang. You. Step. With. Left.
Got that much?......right.
  

       Now you are aware that someone is playing a big drum, listen for the cues. They tell you where you are and when to start, stop, repeat the section, DC, triplet etc. It's not that difficult. And yes, I have been in marching bands. The proper British type with no wussy woodwind.

       Only for those rushing to get away from the tuba player.
