Tuba Wars: Band Kids Stage Sousaphone Lightsaber Battles

Ever heard of ‘Tuba Wars’ or ‘Sousaphone Lightsaber Battles’? Several high school or college aged marching band students have uploaded bewildering sousaphone lightsaber dueling videos on YouTube. Sousaphones, which are brass instruments in the tuba family, are commonly used in marching bands.

How the sousaphone lightsaber battles work is each sousaphone player creates a low, lightsaber-like hum with their instrument while one-handedly dueling the other player with a lightsaber (or in some cases a stick). Many of the sousaphone lightsaber battles appear to be recorded during some downtime inside of a school band room or classroom.
