A group of people who come together to play music. Often comes in two forms in popular usage:
1. A high school band. These tend to be tight-knit groups of kids who all either love or hate what they do. Their shows tend to show great musical skill and/or choreography.
2. A rock band. These tend to be tight-knit groups of people who all either love their music or the money they earn from it. Their shows are either dull or explosive.
The band is playing at 4:30 at the football game, and then Bill is playing with his band at 8:00 after the game.
The best class you could possibly take in high school! Your average high school band will consist of: flutes and too many of them, clairinets, saxaphones(most ranges), maybe an oboe or two, trumpets, trombones, a few low reeds, a few low brass, and percussoin/drums.
The drummers often are seen as incrediably stupid, flutes are often seen as annoying or useless (much to my regret), and the list of instumental steriotypes could continue forever.
High school bands do a variety of activities. We march in parades, we perform concerts, sell candy bars to fund band trips, we perform in regional contests, and always have a good time!
Most people see band geeks as strange, abnormal, and/or worthless beings not worthy of existance. However, I say this to all who has insulted a band geek: Who is it that plays at your football amd basket ball games? Who is it that plays for pep assemblies/rallies?
Don't make fun of band geeks, they make the band. Especially floutists or they'll play a vicious high G just for you!
See that gut over there with the black pants, white shirt, funny bow tie and a trumpet? He is in the BAND.
