Quick question for everyone: Do you feel like the acoustics in Allen Fieldhouse lend itself more to recorded music than the band?

I feel like the band is too loud for AFH and it ends up sounding like white noise. I think recorded music just sounds better. Better bass. Better clarity. Better vibes all the way around.

Nothing against the band. I'm sure they'd sound great in a high school gym. But for AFH, I'd rather hear the real version of "Living On Top of a Prayer" than the band's version. That's just my opinion though.

Recorded music used to suck there until they got a new sound system. The band is part of the tradition and vibe in AFH. Just don't sit right in front of them.

vickingbomber has a recorded message to re-post every six months. Absolutely zero support for canned YMCA music.

Did someone in the band do the nasty with your wife or sister?

No, because Chad Smith would not come down from the stands and play with the AFH sound system.

Chad came down and played with the KU band because a clarinet player recognized him in the crowd and asked him to sit in at halftime with the band. That's what college is about, students getting opportunities to do things like travel with the team to the Champions Classic and Final Four and play on national TV. Students are part of the college basketball experience and flavor. There aren't many perks to being a music major in college, this is one of the few and they work hard to get into this band.

Look Viking, we all know right from wrong. Only a Viking says wrong without reasoning. Let's be more mature here. Tell us more...
