 :o OMG!!! YOU.NEVER.LAY.YOUR.INSTRUMENT.ON.THE.GROUND. :nono2: :brickwall:

Or run on or off the field. There's a reason why you're called a marching band. You march!

And this is coming from someone who attended a school where the band damn near run (fast cadence off the drums) to every formation they make.  Basically, zero formation drills or marching and playing while transitioning from one formation to another.

IMO, the worst part of most HBCUs field shows are the dance routines.  Most bands sound like crap when trying to dance and play at the same time, :brickwall: which is why they are marching bands instead of dancing bands.  Putting horns down while the other half of the band dances is not a bad idea, as long as the half that is still playing can provide a strong and full sound. Southern University has always been known for its formation drills, which is why a lot of HBCUs have adopted that style. Fast cadence from formation to formation is the easy way to rearrange a band on a field without actually doing a formation drill while playing music.  The only time one will see Southern's band fast cadence into a formation is when the band has completed its formation drills and is getting into what is known as block band formation in order to do some dance routine.

See Southern's Michal Jackson performance at ULL is 2009. they lay the instruments on the grass and that is probably one the greatest half time shows in college band history.

One of my favor dance routines SU band does is the one when the band divides into four separate groups.  At different times, each group does a different dance routine while the other three groups continue to play.  Whichever group turn it is to dance, they place their instruments on the ground.  IMO, it allows the band to project a strong and full sound while another part of the band is doing some feature dance routine.  Imagine a band trying to do the new flossing dance while playing their instruments.  The flossing dance requires both arms and hands swinging back and forth around the body as if someone is flossing their teeth.  The sound and the affects of the dance diminishes if someone tries to hold and play an instrument.

I never understood why over the years, people have made such a big deal about bands putting there instruments on the ground during a dance routine/ breakdown.

Most of those who make a big deal about it are individuals who come from schools where bands do very little to no drills, but spend a great deal of time dancing.  Basically, schools that do very little MARCHING BAND drills.  As Doc. Gregg would always say, "it's like rolling a bunch of bb's on the field and rearranging them into some formation."
