Texas Southern Marching Band – Honda Battle of the Bands and The Horns on the Ground Issue

Texas Southern Marching Band – Honda Battle of the Bands from YouTube

Honda Battle of the Bands HBOB 2023
• Texas Southern University “Ocean of Soul”

Good show, but I noticed something that I hope I don’t see again. I saw this done before in another BotB, and apparently it is something people think is okay now. It’s not. I lose respect for any band director I observe instructing this way.

You do NOT put your horn on the ground. It’s unhygienic and disrespectful to your instrument. This should cause a disqualification or at least deduction of points. Aside of making people put something in their mouth that has seen all kinds of feet and animals, everybody doesn’t have hundreds of dollars to replace a water damaged or dirt clogged instrument.

As a parent, if my child walked out of class or practice when instructed to do such a thing, they would have my full backing. In fact, those of you who have been coerced into doing this, speak up. You have a voice here.
