Synopsis

Band Geeks! is a high-stepping tribute to high school marching bands and misfits everywhere.  With just nine members and dwindling funds, the Cuyahoga High Marching Beavers are close to extinction.  When a troubled athlete is relegated to their ranks, Elliott, the tuba-playing band captain and Laura, his best friend, must find a way to unite the band, overcome their pride and embrace their inner geek.
