Massive Marching Band's Awe-Inspiring And Epic Performance

This marching band has moves. Not only do they make beautiful music with their instruments, but they know how to put on quite the performance. 

The band is the Kyoto Tachibana High School Brass Band performing at the ​​Kaohsiung Chengyi Hotel in Taiwan in December of 2023. They travel and perform and attend the Rose Parade in California every year.

When asked how they can play and dance at the same time, they answer on their website, “Lots and lots of practice. Couple of hours every day before school lessons, and several hours afterwards. Training in weekends and holidays. They have 3 days in a year with no practice. Of course, over the years they have also developed effective training methods which speed up the progress.”

They start with the song, ‘Uptown Funk’ which is a song by British record producer, Mark Ronson, featuring Bruno Mars. It was released in 2014 on the album, Uptown Special. ‘Uptown Funk’ is quite the catchy song with lyrics such as:

“Saturday night and we in the spot
Don't believe me, just watch, come on”

The women in the marching band incorporate different moves such as leg tapping, dancing, moving back and forth, spinning around, and overall jamming to the music, all the while playing their instruments. It is quite a talent.

The next song is, ‘Sing, Sing, Sing’ and is from 1936 with music and lyrics by Louis Prima. He first recorded it with the New Orleans Gang. The song was made popular by Benny Goodman and his band and it is well known in the Big Band and Swing genres. 

You might know the lyrics which start off:

“Sing sing sing sing,
Everybody start to sing,
Ooh-hoo, wah-hoo!
Now you're singin' with a swing!”

The marching band leans into the song with their dancing and moving to the music. They also do some waiving towards the end of the song. 

They are quite the sight to be seen, a marching band with so much talent! 

“Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises to him with the tambourine and harp.” - Psalms 149:3
