First, listen to Yes' "Roundabout" found on Ubuweb (scroll down to February 10 for the download). It's the best marching band song I've ever heard.

Next, read this entry from Crud Crud (the 11/17 entry) all about the band. It's a great story, and there are at least three comments by actual band members.

A scatter band is different from a marching band in that it spells out words or makes shapes, instead of marching in formation. In the Stanford Band's case, that meant doing a tribute to the recently kidnapped, Cal student Patty Hearst at the Big Game against Cal (UC Berkeley) by making a formation of a hamburger bun which was missing a patty.
