7. What makes you a band geek: Oh, you know, the way we come up with gangster names for our band directors, the way I always scold my friends when they walk out of step with me at the mall or not roll their toes, my whole family playing instruments, the sign in my front yard proudly showing my place in the marching band, the way I brag to my friends how much cooler I am that I get up in the morning to go to band and exercise while they roll their eyes at me and I just tell them they all shouldn't have quit band because it rocks my socks off. And most importantly, I get along with EVERY BAND MEMBER HOLY COW!! ;)
8. Your best and favorite band camp story/ Memory: When we had a competition between sections who could come up with the best cheer/play, and Marissa, our cheerleader fute came up with an awesome cheer, mimicking/mocking whatever you want to call it, the silly quirks our drill writer/directors/others sections would do, like how the Sax's theme song is 'Row, Row, Row, your boat'...and we WON!! YAY! It was awesome...And how our band came up the the name Band-o's instead of band nerds or geeks, and our whole town knows that, that we are band-o's HAHA YAY! GO BANDO'S!

12. What chair are you and out of how many: I am 4th chair in the Symphonic band (the better one) out of 8 or 9 I think...It's been awhile since school got out...But it's pretty sweet, because I am going to be a Junior this year, and the only flutes higher than me are seniors...so technically, I am the best not counting the seniors who are already the best...

15. Are you in marching band: BOOYAH BABY! Of course I am! YAY!
16. do you have to play an instrument to be a band? why or why not? I think so because a band is instruments...It would be a chorus if it was vocal...But say you have like, a garage band, I would say as long as you have some instruments and are making music, it's a band
17. What do you think about american pie? Actually, I have never seen the whole movie, I've seen about 10-15 minutes of the first movie, but I have seen the flute part, I think, but I usually just quote it as a joke because everybody has seen it except me...I prefer not to really see it either, it might alter my view on band...
18. Where you offenced by the American pie movies? Can't say I was since I didn't see them all
Few more things
19. Is band the most important thing to you? I will be honest, it isn't the most important, my family is very important to me...But I try and be as loyal to band as I can, and it is one of my more important things, it's just, life is so busy...
20. Do you think your a band geek? LOL! I just filled out this whole application because I wanted to join this community so bad, and I talk about band all the time...yea, I would say I am pretty geeky...AND I LOVE BAND!!!
