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.

a "passtime" that takes up your whole life and doesn't allow you to do anything fun because you're too busy with band.
sometimes can be fun, but also hard work. takes some mad skill to be a band nerd. warning: once in band, you automatically become a band geek, even if you don't try
those who quit are losers
p.s. band kids are also known to have some pretty wild parties with a lot of slut dancing
