    The band in the bandstand thing


    1 Not allowed!
    For the first time in ages I got there early on Monday so hung around outside for a while. I don't know whether it was just that choice of the band but it was a bit shabby and ignored. Is this always the case now? Lots of people milling around but the band was kind of pointless and irrelevant.

    Can we get the Salvation Army up there for the Birstol City game playing relevant tunes likes:

    GOSBTS
    MOTD
    Great Escape
    Sweet Caroline
    Etc

    That would be awesome.

      It's always a different band at each game.

      To be honest, the atmosphere was so good anyway you could've had Hitler up there in a pink tutu singing 'She'll be coming round the mountain' and it wouldn't have made any difference.

      Definitely was a weak choice of band on Monday. No offence to the young lads involved as they clearly will be very good with more experience.

      There is obviously a financial issue but for the Bristol City game they MUST push the boat out with an unprecedentedly good bandstand gig. Needs to go on quite a bit longer for one thing as most people miss it.

      The band that did Madness, Specials etc a couple of months ago were excellent.
      The BHAFC forum is utter shite. They literally talk about everything except their own football club on there.

      No wonder the atomsphere wasn't any good at the bandstand, you were 2 days early.
      When you are out and about, if you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.

      Are you suggested the band in the bandstand should be banned?

      I liked the Steel Drum Band, they get things going a bit, but yes this is the opportunity to get someone half decent in.
      I have to give it to you Mr Hughton, you are a far better Manager than I ever thought.

      Unfortunately the bandstand set up is not conducive to a good sound. With no back wall the wind just flies through and would make almost every band sound pretty tinny and weedy.

      Talking of pushing the boat out for Monday, I would imagine that the pre match pitch entertainment will be good, great even!

      The Salvation Army!!! Afraid that would make me walk round the other way.

      Loud rock is what needed (that or the Madness impersonators).
