Notes

Abstract: Recently named the "Best Damn Band in the Land" by the Bleacher Report, the University of North Texas Green Brigade is one of the most celebrated collegiate marching bands in the country. In addition to performing at the home football games each Saturday, college student-musicians in the Green Brigade rehearsal over the summer and for 6 hours a week during the fall semester. For many, these demands are in addition to those associated with majoring in music. The purpose of this epidemiologic study is to characterize health related outcomes associated with participating in a collegiate marching band. A 70 item epidemiologic survey was designed to assess several areas of concern including musculoskeletal and mental health areas. Following IRB approved protocol, 82% of the Green Brigade Marching band (N=246/300) consented to participate in and successfully filled out the survey at the end of the 2011 fall season. Results reveal many interesting patterns and consequences associated with participating in a collegiate marching band. This paper will show demographic variables, patterns of physical and mental health problems, and responses to attitudinal questions regarding perceived value and impact associated with required levels of commitment. Recommendations for action will be offered.
