Band geek

Band geek

A band geek or band nerd is a student who is heavily involved in marching bands and/or concert bands. [Patnaik, G. and Shinseki, M. (2000) "The Secret Life of Teens: Young People Speak Out About Their Lives." HarperCollins] [Bilsland, B. (2004) "What It Means To Be In A Marching Band: A Band Geek Perspective For The Musically Challenged." Authorhouse.] [Dumas, A. (2003) "Lita: A Less Traveled R.O.A.D.--The Reality of Amy Dumas." Simon and Schuster. p 37.] The terms are sometimes used to describe any student who plays an instrument and is in a band class (including students in the orchestra), or those who play an instrument outside of school, as long as it's an instrument typically found in a concert band or orchestra. [Youngs, J.L. (2004) "Taste Berries for Teens #4: Inspirational Short Stories and Encouragement." HCI Teens Publishing. p 7.] [Willman, C. (2005) "Rednecks & Bluenecks: The Politics of Country Music." p 135.] Orch dork is a variation of this term that is applied specifically to members of school orchestras. [Trope, Z. (2003) "Please Don't Kill the Freshman: A Memoir." HarperCollins. p 44.]
