High school football games wouldn’t be the same without dazzling half-time performances by marching bands.
Spectators sing, clap and dance along with the tunes, but few understand how much effort goes into that 8-minute show.
“It is a lot of work,” Lakeside High School Band Director Jim Tau said. “Unless you’ve been in a band, you have no idea what all goes into that.”
Every drum beat, every flash of the brass instruments, every note and every heeled turn is methodically planned and practiced.
