However, a bad band can be a HUGE BUZZ-KILL. Let’s say time-out is called and there is :07 on the clock, your team has the ball and they only need one hoop to win. You need to juice the crowd with fast, upbeat music, Right Here, Right Now, Sandstorm, etc. A bad pep-band playing Louie, Louie ain’t gonna cut it. Would rather have no band than a bad band.

:07 seconds on the clock and you need to get the crowd juiced? Yikes, must be a Knicks game. I love the marching band for football. Less Hollywood and more old-school, please.

The 76ers hosted a “Battle of the Bands” competition during their regular season. Contact the 76ers for more info.

The Portland Trail Blazers used to have a row filled with a bunch of big drums, I don’t know if they still have it. I heard a lot of complaints from season ticket holders who are near that section who found it quite annoying
