AUSTIN (KXAN) - The Lake Travis High School Cavalier marching band in Central Texas really put on a show during halftime when an accidental seven-tuba pileup stole the spotlight on the field.
In a tuba tumble, the entire section fell like dominoes while walking backward in a single file during a move in their drill, each one layering on top of the other into a giant pile.
You’d think that’d be a showstopper, but they immediately got up and went on with the show. And there's no dissonance online, either.
“These kids work hard, and nobody got hurt,” said Ron Wolfe, who wrote into the KXAN ReportIt email. “So they are now excited about how many ‘hits’ they will get. It's cool for the kids they are ‘famous’ now, but for us parents we have to figure out a way to pay to get the sousaphones fixed.”
Wolfe said the tubas were reportedly damaged, and two are completely broken.
