Once a week, we here at MAM, will select one product to shine a light on in order to really give it it's time in the sun and provide a peak behind the curtain into why it is we do what we do. This week I wanted to pull an example of how we like to take what are fairly normal sayings in the world of pageantry merch and make them special.
This one started with a photo I found on tinder of one of those old school drum corps flyers. You know the ones. They were the ones passed out and posted around the advertise for drum corps shows in a world before DCI would send you daily emails about what shows were happening so you could figure out which one to go to.
So, we started there and worked with that general aesthetic to try something new. I’ll be honest here, we always start with a brainstorm of “phrases”. General saying in the marching band world that we all know and associate with the activity and the “I’m With The Band” was an obvious standout. So obvious that we knew that we had to pair it with a design that was also a classic. Call it, cancelling each other out but I think we can agree it just works.
Why We Love It
I don’t even know what else to say at this point. I love this design because of the story that it represents. Because the design itself is made to show our history. That 1970s aesthetic is so ingrained in drum corps and marching band culture and it is something to be celebrated. It pays homage to where the activity started. Now, sure that might be headier than it needs to be but that’s what I’m going for.
Why We Think You’ll Love It
Well we had to call out a tank top. I know nobody wants to hear this but it’s only going to get hotter. And now is the perfect time to restock on your tank tops going into summer rehearsals. Not to even mention that band camp is a thing that is going to be happening. And with free shipping on all orders over $50 with code FREESHIPPING, pick up two tank tops and drop that shipping cost off your total. What do you have to lose?
And, as always, love the design but not the product it's on? Just search the design name and see what other products we have available!
