If you're in Boston this weekend, you might notice an up-tick in horns and drums mingling with traffic on the street. Alternative marching bands have descended on the city to play their brand of infectious marching music. This new breed of marching band looks nothing like your high school band. They use some of the same instrumentation, but they have a style all their own. We hear from one of the band leaders.
