Thanks to FieldProps.com, a division of Band Today LLC, marching bands no longer have to struggle with temperamental homemade props on the field or floor. FieldProps.com offers a variety of customizable prop frames, “movable staging systems” that display large format printed backdrops.
“What sets our props apart is the adjustability and versatility,” says Keith Campbell, founder of Band Today LLC. “You could [add] shelves for guard, equipment spotlights, electronics or whatever you need.”
Backdrop stands come in several different kits, allowing for various configurations. Each package consists of a plastic frame, a weighted base and wheels for good balance and simple movement.
“Every year, field shows are becoming more and more theatrical,” Campbell says. “Adding staging is only going to accentuate the performance.”
In addition to the frames themselves, FieldProps.com offers custom printing for backdrops and for swing flags. Band directors can choose from a selection of designs or submit their own. Flags are dye-sublimated as opposed to digitally printed. “We are the only ones who go from beginning to end to help band directors’ visions come true,” Campbell says.
