Marching Bland Songs are old & boring jingles already, so not hearing any of them would be great.
The bands could then play funky-azz dance music all nite and keep the fans limber.

So how long until the Texas state legislature declares an emergency session and passes a law requiring the band to play Eyes Of Texas, Swing Low Sweet Chariot, The Camp Town Ladies, and that ice cream truck song, or else face fines and imprisonment?

At first I thought they said Eye of the Tiger, and thought WTF does Rocky have to do with minstrel shows?

Thanks for that; I looked it up earlier because TFA doesn't offer much in the way of real details
