21. Band Geek then and now!
Edited on Thu Jan-01-09 03:24 PM by erinlough
I played Sax in 1970's in high school. My son played many instruments in high school band and started a Color guard unit for competition, My husband and I traveled around with the group to move equiptment, we called ourselves the erection crew!!! Then my son earned a spot in a Drum Corp called the Cavaliers out of Rosemont in Chicago. He marched every summer with them and won two world championships with them in the late 90's. I have kept on traveling with them as a volunteer since he aged out. I love the people and the activity. Band Geeks Rule!!!
