I'm looking for an adjective that describes the sound of a marching band that plays really loud and energetic and you like it.
If you hated the music, it would be "blaring", because it's way too loud. But since you are a fan of marching bands, you actually love the obnoxiously loud and intrusive sound. So, if you wanted to say
There was one ____ marching band after another in the parade.
What word would you use to fill in the blank?
The ideal word would be an old-fashioned one that was probably cool 80 years ago like "rootin'-tootin'".
"Thundering" is great but I feel it implies the sound has a lot of bass whereas the brass band in question would sound more high-pitched and piercing. But I ended up using "thundering" anyway, because I like the boisterous feel of the word and the deadline is coming to get me :)
