Reply To: Teaching Show Style Marching Band
Traditional style is in reference to the marching styles of the bands. I know my school, Southern, gets its marching style from the University of Michigan/Michigan State. The only difference between us and the Big Ten bands is that we usually add more colorful choreography while playing more modern/popular upbeat songs during our shows and performances to keep the crowd entertained. Pretty much we have similar styles, we just put our own little twist on the way we do things. Southern University and schools like them are traditional show style bands that just so happen to be HBCUs.
