    I was talking on the phone during the Super Bowl pregame show, and as I glanced at the TV, I caught a glimpse of a marching band on the field, then the picture changed to commercials.

    Anybody know who they were? Just wondering.


    GO PACKERS! :thumbsup:

    No I didnt see that, but durring the halftime show I did notice dancers trying to imitate trumpet players. From what I could tell they werent realy playing, or at least from all the wild dance moves they couldnt be playing very well if they were. It was fun trying to see if they were plastic props or real instruments, but I couldnt tell for sure. I usually watch college basket ball because my wife is a sports nut (instead of a musician). Blecher bands are full of interestng characters and lots of brassy talent. Best wishes.

    The band was the TCU Horned Frog Band. They weren’t well received by the Packer fans because TCU beat Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl. TCU has a great band.
    Go Horned Frogs :thumbsup:

    No, it wasn't! Totally horrible half time show ..... They shouldn't let children sing the national anthem.:thumbdown: Nearly made my father gag.

    We'd have been better off with the Horned Frog Band.:play:

    I would love to see a good Drum and Bugle Corp. perform the super bowel half time shows.

    Agreed, halftime was awful, as was the National Anthem.

    Trumpetup, thanks for the info. Were you at the Super Bowl?

    What passes for pop / rock music these days is mostly garbage - or remakes of
    old classics.
