that was the coolest field show i`ve ever seen, most of the time you just see shapes and lines, woopti doo, but video games, that was just the sh i t and who gives a flying fuc if it wasn`t perfect, those people are just jealous they didn`t get to do it. oh yeah, and CAL rocks your socks

For all of you people saying it`s not that good, lets see you try to do 10 different songs and a lot of them made with synthesizers. Anyway greatest band performence ever! I got to get my School (St Eds) to do something like this. (i heard were good no idea tho lol)

I love that guy who gave the tutorial on Cal and how it`s UC and not Cal State. I swear, everyone from Cal is so high and mighty and think they`re above CSU.

The formations were awesome, but it sounded as though they needed a little more practice with the actual music!

sounds like they should have spent more time practicing than actually playing the video games that had the tunes in them.

I wish we could do this in marching band. that would be epic.

I think I would`ve rather had a high school band perform this, so they would`ve had more time to practice, because it could really stand to be polished up a bit. Not my high school marching band, obviously, but one of the actual competitive ones.

Looks like they need work on... the whole show.
Great concept. Looks like the choreography and music would be excellent - if they would have performed it well.

Uhh no, they sounded bad because they`re a bad college marching band. I`m in a college marching band and I know what good ones sound like-this is not one of them. And like someone else said, we don`t go to competitions and we usually do learn one show a week. College marching band is WAY different than HS marching band (unless you go to a really small college).

sweet!! the only reason they sounded "bad"to some people was because they were moving and running and trying to remember the songs and where they were supposed to go all at once

Well...This was highly entertaining, and it was decently preformed. nothing blue devils-like, but still good. i want to find and kill one trumpet, one trombone, and one tuba from that band. YOURE IN A BAND. I SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO HEAR YOU. Also, taking marching band too seriously is ridiculous. its not an art. its loud poo to entertain your average football fan. yeah, youre good at it. congrats! but don`t be too proud, it`s still silly. for the record, i am in marching band right now; our season just ended.

The bad performance can be blamed on bad videography. Too far away and on the wrong side of the field.

So, what, boring drill, bad blend, horrible phrasing, and trumpet players that don`t even know their own range? Great...
I like the pieces they picked out (due to the fact that I`m a gamer as well as a musician), but I hope they didn`t go to any competitions with that show.

i liked the show, but some of it looked easy compared to what we do, our band does a lot harder shows than that, we only stand still at the beginning of the show, and at the end of movements, i kind of envy them actually, it would be nice to stand and focus on the music rather than marching and trying to play at the same time

i dont get why they played video game music though, it was cool and all but the tetris or pokemon theme songs arent exactly pump up music.
The Rockie theme is those. I love it when the band at my school plays it. They didnt even play at the last game and it was a championchip game though.... (my school is now goin into regionals)
The cheerleaders didnt show up either. So the whole school was there cus it was a champion chip game but the band and the cheer leaders both didnt show up. Worst half time ever.
Lol.
Anyways....
GO INDIANS! yay. I bet they`re gonna go to state!

Pretty cool. I believe college bands do a different show every week, so this was learned and memorized in a week and probably won`t be performed again. I`ve heard that being in a college marching band is pretty grueling.

Cal is the University of California. Same school system as UCLA!! Only they don`t call it UCB coz there is no such thing. They call it Cal because it was the first UC school. Definitely not Cal State... that is a different and slightly less prestigious school system all together.
