Yes, I was a Band-Geek.
One benefit to this was that in senior year of High School I skipped all my classes every Friday and spent the day bouncing from music group to group - concert band, stage band, orchestra, sax ensemble, clarinet ensemble, flute ensemble....
- forced to be in the Marching Band and go to football games (Spectator Sports).
- opportunities for group music are limited for adults
- playing music that other people write isn't much of an art
Upside: discover more-interested varieties of syncopated music.
