Ladies and gentlemen, presenting the 1972 MOB, the precision marching band with a mind of its own. Tonight, the MOB salutes the high school bands which competed in the Band Day competition held this afternoon, and recognizes the hard work and time spent in preparing their shows.
BAND PLAYS FANFARE.
The MOB does not have time to perfect the complex routines other bands perform. Tonight, however, the MOB will attempt to execute the precision drills of other bands, with a little MOB flavor, of course.
BAND PLAYS "FIGHT SONG" TO BLOCK MARCHING. STOPS IN FOUR FORMATIONS.
The MOB has formed four quadrants, and each will march a routine familiar to all: the pinwheel, the circle, the block band, and the diamond drills. The MOB will prove that not only can it do everything, but also it can do everything at the same time. The music? – that old band favorite – "Be Kind to Your Web-Footed Friends."
"KIND" OVER. BAND FORMS "HELLO."
Spell-out drills are popular in many bands, so watch now as the MOB forms its friendly greeting!
(AD LIB COMMENTARY ON FOUL-UP.)
The twirlers are the center of attraction in all half-times, so the MOB pays tribute to its breathtaking beauties – the dropouts of the drop slot. May we have a drum roll please!
ROLL BASS DRUM AROUND.
Ladies and gentlemen, the 1972 MOB twirlers.
BAND PLAYS "HEY LOOK ME OVER."
No band worth its salt would fail to play the pep song as it leaves the field, so the MOB will now do its part for school spirit.
"BONNET" AS BAND LEAVES FIELD.
There you have it, fans: proof that the MOB can do anything other bands do better. In this world of one-upmanship, though, there can be only one MOB! Thank you and good night.
