No matter where you are, you have to know the style of the music you are playing. If it is a college fight song, then probably bottom heavy and short. I don't pay attention to much college bands' shows but if you were to do like my band did a couple years back and play the second movement to Lincolnshire Posy by Grainger for a ballad, then you'd better play it like you would in a concert hall. Consequently, we received many compliments from other band members at competitions for doing this. It can be done. But again, just know what it is you are playing. Nothing is ever the same.
