|French horn in concert band (also district/regional orchestras and pit orchestra for our high school musicals), tenor sax in jazz band, but they made me march with a flugelhorn -- cheap instrument with a remarkably soggy tone. I had a brief stint in the university marching band, playing sousaphone. Now, that's a fun instrument!
Our high school fielded a big marching band... I think we had at least 200 players, plus probably another hundred by the time you added up color guard, majorettes, "rifle" squad, etc.

"Here comes the Plum High Marching Band! They're coming over the hill now... and they're still coming... and they're still coming!!"
