We’ve had a look at two that are commonly mixed up; the military band and marching band. In short, a military band does in fact fall under the marching band genre as the latter’s term applies to a range of brass bands, including drum and bugle corp and the party band. However, military band refers to a brass band that performs in organised and straight ranks, with a lot of emphasis on their uniformity and will play patriotic or official nation songs. Whereas a marching band may be found at colleges, performing at halftime during a big game and with much more crowd engagement.
