.. Tunes that Feck'd You Up

Post by True_Blue_Piper on Tue 14 Oct - 17:40:22

OK.....so you play your tunes, your repertoire and think you played well.......only to not get a placing.....

Perhaps the biggest screw up of all time was the City of Edinburgh Police (in 1965 although I stand to be corrected).....

The band had won the Worlds in '64 but the following year marched on to "the Conundrum" as their 2/4.....

There were those in the audience who said it was their best performance ever.....and certianly streaks above any other band playing that day....and yet "The Conundrum" was not considered acceptable....it was not a "proper" 2/4 competition march.

I find it amusing considering that 22 years later, when in a top (G2) band....it was our 2/4 march and accepted.....how things change.

So come on......what tunes / what performances, rightly or wrongly do you believe have screwed your band up.....or any other band?
