To Beat The Band
Hacer Tanto Ruido Como Para Despertar a los Muertos
You beat the band when you make a lot of noise. In fact, people tell you that you are noisier than a band is. You might defeat a band in making noise.
This idiomatic expression came to America from England during the 1800’s. Bands were usually playing in the luxury liners. So if you wanted to have a conversation while the band was playing you had to beat it. Nowadays, we use this expression to express excitement or amazement for an astonishing, great achievement.
