Wow that is an interesting challenge. To feed that number of people, you can do a VERY large tiered cake or (like many caterers do) you can make a beautiful tiered cake, but also sheet cakes that are cut for serving large numbers of people.

A school band cake that is western themed. Hmm. What is the schools mascot? Perhaps that can be worked into the theme. Or if the mascot is a cowboy or something - then how about a molded cowboy playing an instrument on top. Or the tiers could depict a ranch or 'old west' setting. Fences, cows, old style wooden bldgs, bandana pattern, etc.

I hope this helps! I look forward to seeing the final product. : )
