You know - the standard high school band. I have a theory about band, that it is mostly the death of musical desire. The instruments are mostly tragic in anything but a John Phillip Souza nightmare, the songs are horrible, or great songs done horribly.
For all of the "Music / music education is important" crap I hear - I don't buy it, and I'm a musician!!!!
And if you know people who were in band, do they still play?
