    Hey, ISU Band dudes!!!

    Has the MBB pep band ever made any recordings? I didn't find any audio clips online from the pep bands that play in Hilton, only from the marching band.

    It was also kind of a bummer on CloneZone last night that during the timeouts, they'd show the pep band playing, but cut the sound. I guess that's because they were using the Cyclone radio network feed.

    There hasn't been a specific pep band-only recording session. Probably cost-prohibitive. Plus, there are several pep band tunes that I can't imagine sounding nearly as tight with the full marching band playing.

    Y'all ought to throw a couple of mics up at a MBB game and record sometime. The peps bands have their own unique sound...

    Also from the experience of recording songs for the marching band, most of the songs we can not record and sell because of copyright issues.

    They could probably use the facilities in Music Hall if it really came down to it. Last I knew, the Recital Hall was equipped for good-quality recording, and the stage is large enough for the pep band.

    (isumellie beat me to this, but...) The other thing that has hamstrung previous marching band CDs is getting the rights to some songs. There were multiple good halftime shows that had to be scrapped from CDs entirely due to an inability to obtain rights. That would definitely be a red flag for the sale of any pep band recording, and maybe even free downloads, too.

    I wasn't thinking so much of a CD for sale, but more just putting a few clips up on the band website (so the recordings wouldn't have to be CD quality). Although, I'm sure there are probably even copyright issues with just putting sound clips up...
