Cool Bull Pen Pep Band not allowed on field

NFL rule being enforced. I hope they find a way to bring them back to the stands.

Yeah, I have to say, this is not the way to encourage participation in the band.

I love them and think this is a put down if you ask me. They are there to do a job and make it fun and more interesting for the fans. The Bull Pen Pep Band is the best in the NFL and as Texans fans we are lucky to have such a great group preform for us at every home game. If you don't like the Pep Band then you should consider just watching the game at home or just ignore them and go on your marry way because they are not going to stop playing just for you. GO TEXANS

They used to camp out in the concourse behind in the upper decks and play several tunes while the game was being played.

It was very distracting. Thankfully, that all ended last year.

Not liking the fact that they play during the game is one thing. They practie to be as good as they are not to be annoying most of the love it. They don't just show up at the games to play they put work into it and were created by the Texans so tell them but we should not call out the band it's a let down IMO.

I once jammed to Mustang Sally in Bb with that band!( Thanks bass player)
I think they need their own section so they can keep the excitment going.
So now what happens to them?

Hopefully SOMETHING. Now I believe they are forced to roam the stadium during the game.

I HOPE SOME HOW they can be put back into the back rows of the Bullpen!!

I for one am going to send an e-mail to

fanfeedback@houstontexans.com

to express my hoping that the Band will be given a home. After all, they work very hard and I believe do it for free.

The could always set up small metal bleachers just behind the Bull Pen. The only thing that would have to be moved would be a couple of mobile beer stands.

Default Re: Bull Pen Pep Band not allowed on field

Okay, so, take this with a grain of salt because I'm a sound engineer so I'm sensitive to this stuff but the acoustics in Reliant are TERRIBLE. If you sit in the uppers the pep band sounds like four guys playing toy trumpets. That's right, the entire band sounds like trumpets.

If they set the band up in that walkway behind the bullpen it would be deafening to the fans at the back of that section. Those concrete chambers are extremely loud. You would have to put the band at field level in the first few rows of a section to keep from blasting the people sitting in front of them.

The bell of a trumpet can produce sounds exceeding 140 decibels. (Thats nearing the sound of a jet engine from a few feet away.) It doesn't feel as loud because it's frequency range is much smaller than a Jet Engine. So it's perceived as quieter but the discomfort level still exists.

If the band was in front of the fans (as they are on the field) the acoustic volume (direct sound) would be reduced dramatically.

Secondly the band is not recorded clearly because they use a few microphones that pick up a general area instead of recording each instrument and mixing it together via a sound board (which they have). In a loud stadium capturing sound in proximity to the source is critical.

Thirdly, they are battling the PA system and it's a loosign battle. You can't even understand speech up there in the 600's. (and our ears are naturally tuned to hear speech!)

There are several factors that need to be addressed with the Pep Band.

Having said that, Not having them would be a loss of our unique game experience. I just think it should be improved upon considerably.
