By some strange coincidence I often played in the Stanford band for 
about 8 years in the 80s and 90s (even though I never actually went to 
Stanford University.)   It was a lot of fun and I learned many strange 
things ;-) but I never played at any reunion party that I can recall.

When the band was really playing loud on the field I could feel the  
pressure of the bass drum (just one) coming back through my sousaphone!

That was loud.
