OK this poll will probably reflect all the above options equally or it may depend on your position conductor, player or audiencebut I'll ask it anyway. A lot of you were probably out playing this weekend and the weather was terrific but what did you do with your band jackets. Did you play on regardless in 80 degrees, play for a short while then take them off or not wear them at all? I have come across this at a number different bands and the only criteria seems to be "we have a unform so we must wear it at all times" or "we don't look smart in shirts". At Killamarsh we resolved the above views by having a separate "summer" uniform which is usual blacks and a polo shirt with embroided band emblem. Agreed not as smart as jacket and ties but for out-door jobs seems acceptable. Do the audience expect to see the band in full dress uniforms and if so do they appreciate the levels of comfort the band are suffering?
