So, I was at the Senior Night game and I have to say the student band is really loud. I was on the other side of AFH and my ears are still ringing from the noise. I may be out of line here, and I know the band is a tradition, but I for one would like to hear more recorded music during timeout and breaks in the action. Something like "Pump Up the Jam" or one of CC Music Factory's songs gets my heart racing a lot more than just your regular drums and horns and whatnot. Anyway, just a thought. If anyone agrees, I'd be willing to draft a letter to the sports department.

Katy Perry's "Roar"?

That band is loud I agree.

I would throw the band out of AFH altogether. They could get a pretty penny for those seats the band currently occupies.

Who needs a band when you have miley cyrus and "party in the USA"

Ha, laugh it up, but some folks want to be able to hear the next day after paying good money for a basketball game. While I realize your requests are in jest, I'm serious when I say that Bon Jovi's original recording of "Living On The Prayer" is far superior to any college band's rendition. Welcome to 2017, people. We don't need a loud live band anymore.

And Walk the Moon's version of Shut Up and Dance is better and the Beatles version of Hey Jude is better and Led Zeppellin's version of Kashmir is better. . . . But damned if I don't love me some basketball band music.

Let's just cut music out of the courses at KU too like all of the grade schools. Cut all of those kids scholarships. Sounds like a good plan.

I'm afraid I don't agree with you either. Some years ago KUAthletics suggested doing away with the band and having recorded music as they do in pro arenas. There was a terrible backlash.

Not trying to be a jerk. But maybe you could just take some ear plugs.

As a Physics major (1959), I was privileged to play trombone with the KU marching band in the Fall of 1955 and 1956. I still recall the disappointment of not making the basketball pep band. I have always thought it was because I wasn't a music major. It could be that I wasn't good enough. Tradition means much more to ancient alumi such as myself.
