Things to look out for at this years Whit Friday Marches. The Forlorn Hope. When the trombone frontline get the red mist and forge ahead in uncharacteristically perfect order, oblivious to the huge gap opening up behind them. Scrum Down. The opposite of the Forlorn Hope where the enthusiasm of the smaller instruments isn't matched by that of the larger instruments. Going for the Summit. When a maverick player, usually a trombone, decides to strike out on his/her own leaving the rest of the band behind. Parting of the Red Sea. The formation adopted by a band after the 'voiding' of a police horse at the larger venues. More professional musicians will 'take one for the team' and not break stride. The Kick and Chase. A new lyre - 6 quid. A roll of Sellotape - 1 quid. A player kicking their music along the floor - priceless. Lord of The Dance. A player having to perform some fancy footwork to try and get back into step. This can range from a small shuffle to a full on, mid-air 'Double Flattley'. Riverdance. For one night only, the band librarian on bass drum. Jones' Twitch. An affliction suffered by bandsmen with a modicum of army training, causing the affected player to doggedly insist on taking three extra steps after the signal to stop marching. Playing the Lottery. Bands that assume that all their borrowed players know that they're starting at the bass solo but not marching until the next double bar!! Anybody any more?
