I'm with the Band: Western Carolina

Band: Catamount Marching Band
University: Western Carolina University
Founded: 1938
Current Director: David Starnes
Fight Song: "Fight on! You Catamounts"
Today's Home Game: Appalachian State, 3:30 p.m.

If Michigan is the Beatles and Florida A&M is James Brown, then Western Carolina is Frank Zappa.  No marching band in America is as far-out wacky as WCU's Pride of the Mountains, challenging every convention of the idiom one Saturday at a time.  Here's a promotional video for an overview:
