This one time, at band camp …

As a former band geek (I played the trombone for nearly 15 years) I know this time a season it’s not just football.

The cheerleaders are getting their routines down and of course the soundtrack of every football game are the marching bands.

I know a good marching band when I see one and I have to give props to the Apache marching band.

They march with precision and have a good sound.

Freddy is trying to convince me that no band in the WSGV compares to the Muir drumline. I haven’t seen them in a long time but my vote right now goes to Arcadia High.

Can’t have it all, Muir.

So with that in mind, who are the best marching bands in the area?

My top 5:

1. Arcadia

2. Muir

3. Temple City

4. Monrovia

5. Pasadena

Here’s my little confession: I auditioned twice to be in the Tournament of Roses Honor Marching Band and twice was denied, and I’m still bummed about it.

This is Freddy sneaking in and adding my two cents…I’ll take the Muir drumline instead anytime.
