I mean marching band in the sense that they are up front with the
battery/pit, where they don't march, but are still part of the show.
About generators though, usually the stadium has a nify little creation
called the "electric plug".
Sorry if this was confusing.

|C'mon now - this is getting ridiculous! Don't you mean pep band?
