The Princeton University Band looks almost as though it’s in formation as members exit Blair Arch in this undated photo. Formations are not in the repertoire of the band, which is among fewer than a dozen scramble bands in the United States. Traditional bands move through formations via precision marching, while a well-executed scramble, according to the Princeton Band’s Web site, “may look like a cross between a riot, a fire drill, and a half-off sale at Macy’s."
