Our band wears black and red uniforms...we're doing several differnet shows this year and as drum majors we're dressing differntly for each show...one show we'll wear black tuxes and dresses...another show we're wearing the same uniform as the band but with capes ;D.  And our other uniform is undecided as of now.

I'm wearing the regular marching uniform, except my sash colors are inverted from the band's sashes, and I wear a red cape. I prefer that look because two years ago, our drum majors wore dresses, but when we switched back to uniforms last year, they just looked cleaner compared to the dresses. If I had a choice, I would stick with the uniform, but I have seen many drum majors that look very nice in the dress and tux set up.

we wear the same uniform only instead of dark blue jacket its black jacket.
i personally don't see the point in wearing dresses and tuxes it's just like come on it's marching band not a school dance.

i think tuxes and dresses are classy and elegant and are good to show say... the theme or ideas represented by the performance. band uniforms are good too cause they look more professional.

I would like to see more bands put band uniforms on their drum majors, as long as they don't give the girls those ugly skirts instead of slacks.  What Avon does is give the guys band uniforms, and the girls dresses that are based off of the guard uniforms.  The last time that Avon had the girl drum majors wear band uniforms was 1996, and they skipped the shakos, because they wanted the judges to be able to tell they were girls.  They should have used the shakos, becausee most groups take their hats off when they conduct anyhow.

My opinion is to just make the uniform fit the theme of the show...ie- our band did a patriotic show a couple years ago and one drum major wore a army uniform, the other a navy uniform, and the third a air force uniform...Whatever your uniform it should make you stand out and compliment the band and the show

i agree it should go with the theme of the show. for me and   joshlynn we might where a single strap dress that starts at the hip and angles its way down to below the knee and we might wear our band uniform pants underneath. it looks better than it sounds. but right know we don't know what tyler should wear. we want to make him look good but not rediculous. any advice??? i recommend that you guys ask your band director for a color guard magazine with outfits in them for ideas. that's how we found some of ours and worked it out form there. happy hunting  ;D

hey guys, i decided what i'm gonna wear now. it's a two piece dress that's black and gold. the top part is hard to explain what it looks like but anyways, it's really elegant. oh, and i'm gonna have a cape to go over it that's gonna be a kinda sheer fabric and at the end of the first or second song i take off the cape to reveal the dress. it's gonna be sooooo cool and it fits with our show theme about change (we don't have a title yet). what do you guys think about it?

The drum majors here have always decided what they were going to wear.  It's more of a find what you like and get the "ok" from the director type thing.  Last year I got a classic black dress...sure it was a prom dress, but there weren't any sparkles or decorations of any kind on it.  This year I wanted to be a little different, so I got another prom dress that's a brown halter top.  It's actually a really dark, chocolate brown on top, fading into a lighter brown in the middle, and then back to the darker brown at the bottom.  It's then got a black overlay that has a few beaded designs put into it.  Our colorguard have neutral colors this year, and I thought black would look kinda odd next to them.
