Does the Band take requests?

Speaking of the band…

I was listening to John Williams today and I thought, is there any way the band could play something like this? Maybe at halftime?

I'd LOVE to hear it. Something big and dramatic.

Or some Alan Silvestri… Forrest Gump theme anybody? Din nuh nuh! DIN NUH NUH! To inspire the guys to run a TD?

(Forrest Gump was a star football player, so it makes sense to play some from that theme!)




on a side note: maybe the admins could also consider a "Spirit" section for the messageboard for all band/cheerleader/dance team/Rowdy Rex/prOWLer discussions…

P.S. I don't respond to guest posts. All guests are encouraged to register with the site.

Re: Does the Band take requests?

well our director is pretty open to ideas. we usually try to do things that the crowds will like alot. for instance, "jump on it"..i dont really like playing it, but the crowd eats it up. so thats why stuff like John Williams isn't played much, unless it was Star Wars stuff. I want to arrange "Mr. Roboto". I think that would make a killer show tune, with HEAVY percussion parts  ;D

HAHA Mr. Roboto would be awesome. With a young crowd though I don't know if everyone would get it. I think it would be a lot of "I know this song, what is this" or "I've heard this song, what's it called" lol

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

well, if i had my way, half the band would start doing the robot on the field and then everyone would get it. i think it'd be a crowd favorite. i'd like to play some more "ghetto" tunes too. i have so many ideas for songs to play, i just dont know how to arrange music so i cant do them.

Hey Fasho, what is that jiggy little tune they play where all the Flags and twirlers step down at the foot of the bleachers and do a little hop thing? Its mostly percussion. Owlsley usually joins in. Its quite catchy and fun to watch. Maybe you could cut back on the steps so the crowd can follow?

It's called the "Soulja Boy"..its a rap. Basically, the lyrics of the song tell you how to do the dance, its a crap load of fun. I'm hoping that someone got us doing it at the Battle of the Bands because it was awesome
