I have to say
Akron's band, small as it is without clarinets and flutes, sounded pretty darned good when we were there for the Women's game.
Toledo's band also had a very decent, clean sound when we were there.
However, I still think our very own pep bands at the basketball games sound wonderful. Watching them play you can see how much they enjoy it. Listening to them play you can hear how much energy they put into it.
I never will figure out, though, why home team bands play that
song when BG is visiting. When we get to the "Go [home team]" part our fans outshout their fans with "GO B G
" every time. And rightfully so.
I look forward to hearing the BG band, even in its travelling reduced size, out shine and out play (and out cheer) the other MAC bands in Cleveland next week.
