Re: Just a Question for Debate
...neither was HS marching band. It is folly to believe that HS marching band exists, or existed in a vacuum. In fact it wasn't until the mid-80's when drum corps started to really influence band...until then it was more the other way around as marching bands were already starting to experiment with movement beyond 6-5 or 4 man squads.
BTW, I also have several of the old VFW Nationals recordings...although they're CD transfers from the original reel-to-reel tapes (59, 60-63, 65...my favorite).
