Did u try duct tape???
go-fly-akite asked: I play marimba with 5 octaves and very low hanging resonators. So in our competition two weeks ago we were at warm up and everything was going great up when we were supposed to move I had to get back on the ledge. Well my resonators drop off and bolts come loose and needless to say I could not use my own. We had to borrow a different schools marimba for my performance. I only had my mallet bag. No cymbal, no mic, no extra octave. It was hell
oh no that’s terrible!!! at the beginning of the season this year, our 5 octave kind of exploded, like there was a very rusty part of it or something that just kind of flew off and all the resonators just dropped. holy poop it was scary. i’m glad i was on staff this year or i probably would have tried (and failed) to help. i hope your marimba was repaired after the show :(

Guyyyyyys! Sorry we’ve been so silent lately with posts, we both just moved into college and are really REALLY busy! Don’t worry though, we’ll be returning soon. Stay classy you gorgeous pit people.
Guys I really need your help, please read.
This year, my high school marching band has been invited to march to represent Maryland in the Pearl Harbor memorial parade in Hawaii. This is an extremely high honor for us, especially being such a small-town band and the only Maryland band to participate and be crowned champion in Bands of America competitions.
However, transporting instruments and almost 100 kids and chaperones is going to cost about $150,000. Everyone has been fundraising like crazy, even seeking publicity opportunities by appearing in the local news. So far, we have about $72,000 raised. If we can’t meet our goal, not only will they not be able to go to Hawaii, but they will have to give all that money back to the sponsors and donors, meaning we can’t even keep it to fund our already dwindling instrumental music program.
We have until the end of this month to meet that goal, that’s not a lot of time!!! I need anyone who sees this to please reblog and signal boost this like crazy. This group has been my lifeblood for the past 4 years and the members and staff are like family to me. I want nothing more than for these kids to seize this life-changing opportunity. There is nothing like the support and camaraderie in this band and I hope it continues to be a tradition for years to come.
The donation page and more information can be found here.
This is our band and it’s super duper important!!! Please pass this on my lovely pit friends!!!

Hey all! I noticed how many of you saw that video I made as an answer to epicsquidy’s question and many of ya’ll liked it. That got me thinking, I will make a little video like that to EVERY (maybe not every… we’ll see) question we are asked. Even if it’s just me sitting next to a wall talking with this look on my face.
Ok, cool, sweet, amazing, sensational… yes.
