Reply To: Band Seating
I move my seating around all through the rehearsal process, the only thing I make sure of at performance is that the horns are on the left. Also, I went to a local festival with the question in mind. I sat all day and mapped out each group and made comments regarding the sound. I have not figured out why exactly but bands with 4 rows regarless of size had a better, blended, more intune sound than bands with three. My current band of 40 has 5 in row two, but it always works.
