Once I was playing cymbals (ages ago) in band when one of them flew off my hand and pelted straight at one of the more arrogant trumpet players. His ego was stinted when he had to walk around with an eye patch for the rest of the week...
He got me back though by hiding the mallets before the next performance- in which I had to use two twigs with tissues and elastics as mallets...
Naturally I felt it only right to get back at him so I swapped his sheet music for the clarinet part. Being the ego-maniac he is he said he'd just play the clarinet part... not only did that fail but he got moved down from 1st trumpet to 4th...
He decided (as ego-maniacs do) to get me back... his idea was to put the timpani massively out of tune before our next performance. it took me a little longer to tune. But it all backfired on him as he whisked his head around to see how I'd react and face planted the crash cymbals...
He was bright red and his working eye was now disabled aswell...
He didn't stop there though, to this very day he still tries to get me back (for what? chucking a cymbal at him and getting him moved down to 4th trumpet ? It was his fault anyways...).
Now he'll move things "help" set up percussion the wrong way and mess with the music.
well, at an away compotition, we all had to change in these bathrooms that were connected. so the girls got a girls and boys bathroom and the boys got a girls and boys bathroom on the oppisite side of the lobby. one of the boys who changed in the girls bathroom came out holding a tampax tampon. our director scolded him as well as some girls.
on our way home from ACCs, the band stopped at mcdonalds to get dinner. i sat with my friends chris and court. court went to the bathroom and left me with her ice cream, which she still wanted. BIG MISTAKE! we took pepper, salt, iced coffee, a french fry, and some coke and put it all in her ice cream. i sturred it so it wouldnt look like we had done something to it but the french fry gave it away. she still hates me for it.
one morning at bandcamp, right after wake up call,we all headed out to the lobby to watch nick play pool against greg. While waiting for his turn, nick stood next to the soda machine where alex was also standing. as soon as nick came near alex he had a hard on. it was gross.
at a football game against the canners we were sitting in the stands when alex leaned over and told me he wanted nick to spank him. nick was sitting right next to me and he over heard what alex had said and slowly scooted away with a discusted look on his face. the look on nicks face was priceless.
i hav one that was a second part to the mcdonalds one u wrote!!! after that we went in the play place area and we saw ryan and greg building a fort of legos.then "some1" knocked it over.then walking out sarah fell over the curb and wouldnt stop laughin'.omg funny band stories never die
chicken in the window at kfc. 2 yrs ago on band tour we found a piece of chicken in the window.it had ants all over it (we called it "pepper")then l8er my friend went in the bathroom and she said there was (wat looked like) potting soil all ove the bathroom floor...ewwww
I was playing in band class one day with my music teacher hitting his baton on the stand in front of him to keep the tempo for the rest of the band. Anyway, the baton "slips" when he hit it on the stand and flies into the air. It spins and starts falling with the wooden bottom part facing toward the ground. It hits me in the head (scaring me in the process because I wasn't paying attention) and creates a bump that lasted for a few days.
on the bus ride to county chorus a lost her body spray perfume type thing.it rolled to the front of the bus.the band director was sitting there and picked it up.he asked "whose is this?" the raised her hand and he said..."good, i was hoping it wasnt a guys." everyone started laughing.
omg we just got back from band camp 07.my buddy zack wanted to pull a joke on one of the new trombones.zack gathered a lot of guys in the bathroom so they could hear him scream(as he was taking a hot shower.any way he was telling dave the trombone stuff to "not" do in the shower (as in wat would mess up his plan)like bendin over or looking at the floor.then he said r u ready 4 the most important 1 of all?he said yes and Zack dumped a trash can full of freezing cold water on him. he screamed and every1 laughed.i heard about it early the next morning.so funny
found out later that every guy was in their when he screamed...i still wonder where he got all the water w/o anyone noticing...how he stole the garbage can... and how he didnt get in trouble w/ the band directer, and how dave didnt hear everybody b4 zac dumped the can of cold water.
One time this girl in our band got mono somehow, and didnt know about it until the next day. She plays alto sax, and her friends always play hers. Well around 10 people played her sax, and 8 of them got mono, and it was 2 days before the concert, at which point everyone was feeling like crap. Then she tells everyone shes sick, and everyone was !***!ed at her, cept the people who werent sick. We laughed our @$$es of at them.
I really like the one someone told about the guy that came out w/ a tampon, hilarious...
I have one.
During my freshman band camp,we had to go down the feild and it was either take a very steep slope or take the stairs.
well I was playing bass drum at the time and I was walking down the stairs andI guess I didnt see the step or something but I fell and all you heard through the forest was this big bang.
I thought it was because the drum feel,but no.The harness got compressed against my back and it was very difficult to get off.
Finally someone came and we started back down the stairs.
Someone said,"Have you always had the hole in your drum cheyenne?"
iM LIKE what are you talking abt?
so I take off my drum and there is a big ole slach in the middle.
I started crying cause I knew I couldnt afford a new drum head.
well I finally get down to the feild and I tell my band teacher and at that time IM balling my eyes out.He said,calm down.Itll be ok.
So now its still broken and the new band teacher is !***!ed at me!LoL
there is this guy, nick, in the band and last year at band camp he did a drum roll, as in he rolled down the hill and he's a drummer.
the biggest sport at band camp is pool. last year we kept track of how many games nick won and lost and by the end of the week he was at negative 2-3 games. this year he lost to me both times he played me, and i cant even play pool. he always loses by shooting the 8 ball in to early or shoring it in the wrong hole.
at full rehersal my band teacher had her shirt on inside out and all the band knew, but none of us said anything. it was hysterical when she said 1/2 the trumpets were playing a rythm backwards...
well... thats when 1 of them pointed it out.
i think she stayed like that the rest of the day.
