Gee Samuel, What timing! My team is discussing this very issue, because we are preparing for our invitational, the Ford Sweet Repeat in September. We decided to include music that everyone would like, even the old farts!
I have noticed, as I’m sure you all have, that the music reaches a fever pitch, in both volume and intensity of music when matches are more intense, or when we are in the finals. More soothing music seems to materialize during lunch and in between matches. When nothing much is going on, maybe a little slow…we hear something silly like ‘YMCA’, where the audience can participate a little.
I think the appeal of the music FIRST plays is universal, not to everyone at the same time, but that enough music is played so that all tastes can be satisfied.
I liked the mix that was played at the Zeeland competition (which by the way was a BLAST!), because they included stuff that I actually knew…old things from Santana, and some of the great bands of the 70’s.
We plan to include a wide variety of music at the Ford Sweet Repeat, plus we are planning the volume changes and the intensity of the tunes for specific occurrences throughout the day.
By the way, if any of you out there are planning to attend, and would like specific tunes included in our mix, please let us know, and we’ll add them!
