scatter band
 n.— «Nowhere is this attitude more apparent than in the Virginia pep band, whose outrageousness over the years has thrilled fans but has often distressed school officials, anxious to keep the Virginia free from lawsuits. Once during a trip to Maryland, “The Scatter Band” saluted former Maryland Governor Marvin Mandel, who had been imprisoned on charges of political corruption. The Mandel look-alike took the field in a ball and chain.» —“Southern-Fried Football” Atlanta Journal and Constitution Aug. 24, 1986. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
