In the tradition of "Glee" and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Band Geeks is a celebration of the tribulations of the millions who have spent football halftimes pounding out Sousa-like renditions of "Maria." With just nine members and dwindling funds, the Cuyahoga High Marching Beavers are close to extinction. When a troubled athlete is relegated to their ranks, Elliott, the tuba-playing band captain and Laura, his best friend, must find a way to unite the band, embrace their inner geek and save the Marching Beavers.
