Default OSU Marching Band

Thought I would share this with those of you who haven't seen it. I grew up watching the "Mighty Sound of the Southeast" as my uncle was in the band when I was a toddler and have always had a deep love for marching band despite choosing to play football up through high school rather than joining band(a decision I seriously regret). With no disrespect towards our band intended, this is the best halftime show I think I have ever seen.
Check it out.

OSU has an outstanding band. They only use about 225 or so players that consist of brass and percussion. In addition to having one of the premier School's of Music in the nation, by having just brass and a smaller band it makes it much more competitive.

Their budget from what I hear is right at 1 mil.

The MSoSE has a great budget (from what I can tell as a member), but it's not in the OSU kind of range. So, with a better $/member ratio OSU can afford to do some things other band cannot. I hear they use iPads to set drill during rehearsal and such, they pay a company to record and post their videos on youtube, etc. Extra things that seem kind of silly but really help with the overall performance of the band.

Also 2 hours rehearsals 5 days a week also helps.

FWIW, the Carolina Band sank a ship in our "Cocky Strikes Back" show last season..... So, OSU was behind the curve on that one. :P




Side note: The views expressed are mine and do not necessarily reflects the views of other members, staff, directors or the university.
