The new drum solo.... I... can't...breathe.

I totaled it up in my head. I march/run approximately 80 YARDS during the drum solo alone. Can you believe it? Just during the drum solo! Running! AAAHHH!!! And to do it 7 or so times? Are you kidding me? ARRGH...

I hope it looks darn good. Well...let me put it this way. IT HAD BETTER!!!

Yeah. I and some of the other sousaphones have to go from 30 to 30 in those counts. It's tough with those sousaphones on.

What tune are you guys doing this during????

(Fave show of all time for me was the one with the "Toccata" opener!! We did that and "Batman" and a couple other very slammin' cool things. Not a block anywhere in sight either...paisleys EVERYWHERE!).

Try to find a way to have fun with it though. Having been there, I don't envy you those rehearsals!!!!!

I don't know the name of the drum solo. But we're playing an Earth, Wind, and Fire show at Mach 3. lol. Most of it is pretty quick and up beat so by the end the show, we all look like we're about to fall over! :)

It's a fun show, don't get me wrong, but... I never thought band would feel like track and field! lol

I can imagine, wow. Those things are heavy enough without moving at the speed of light to get where you're going!

I get to run from the 45 on the right to 2 steps oustide the 20 on the other side of the field when we do the scatter. oi.
