    Doubt it, but heck, this is a great thread starter - who can think of appropriate pieces to play whilst marching nude then.

    My money for one of the first to reply to this is on either PB or 2MD....;)

    Sorry, can't see the link between nude marching and a 'Red Castle'!

    Definitely Not! :eek:

    Marching fully clothed is a nightmare as it is!

    No, I don't think we have the climate for marching in the nude!

    Besides, from what I have seen on TV programmes about nudity in general, it seems the people most inclined to take their clothes off are those that really ought to keep their clothes on! ;) So in the name of good taste (and keeping my dinner down), I say that nobody should be considering this! :tongue:

    Not for me - would have problems ironing out the creases, would loose the band its deprtment prize

    Why not, in for a penny, in for a pound. I reckon a few beers would get me in the mood for it :p

    A nudist band would certainly brighten up Whit Friday!

    We did march to "The Stripper" with Coventry Festival Band in Coventry carnival when my dad was the MD, but didn't take it that literally - although we were in shirst-sleeves, watching the Life Guards stiflinng in their reds ;)

    Perhaps someone could come up with a suitable arrangement of "The bare necessities" for the occasion, or else either "I've got my love to keep me warm" or "I've got you under my skin" if it happens to be a cold day!

    As to the question of whether I'd do it: I don't see why not, but they'd have to allow my bass strap!!!

    It might be a bit fast to march to - unless we sign up to the Light Infantry - but there's a galop that Sandstorm Brass recorded on their cd entitled "The Flash" :eek:

    Failing that, we could always try Malcolm Arnold's "Flourish for a birthday (suit)"!

    Has just been suggested to me that "Swing Low" might be a good tune but have not seen it in march time. Would never have thought of it myself, honest. :oops:

    He he, thanks TMM, my reputation preceeds me! ;)

    I'd happily play in the buff, so that's me, Roy and Peter Bale so far, any more takers?

    As for pieces to play...erm...The Dam Busters? :-? Swinging Safari??

    A couple of these, from an old Royal Marines cd, may be felt suitable, if they don't get modded!

    For the exhibitionists amongst us - and one that used to be quite popular with military bands a few years back: "Hey, look me over" ;)

    OK but only if I can play BBb or something equally as large.
