According to trade reports, DWTS producers will replace the band with sound recordings and a “small electric band” to “attract a younger demographic.

I'm sure a lot of 20 somethings will now run to their TVs to watch DWTS ... what BS ... all about the $$$$$ mad

missed that the first time ... just did it - not that it will matter ... the REALLY sad part is that most of the viewing public - maybe even 92% - won't even realize it ...

When do we all wake up to the fact that we are at WAR with corporate America?

We are a highly disposable liability to them, not valued employees. In fact, the entire concept of 'valued employees' has gone completely out the window.

50 years of organized labor, the ONLY counterbalance to unbridled greed from corporations, has been swept away in the last 20 years or so.

And I bet half of us have drunk the Fox Kool-Aid and actually THINK that 'deregulation' is a GOOD thing! You know why those regulations they all hate got written in the first place? To PROTECT us from greedy banks and corporations. Deregulation sure helped THEM, didn't it?! Think it's doing you any good..?

What is it going to take for America to wake up from this nightmare?

All is not lost yet, I look at it this way, ...musicians have to create and record the recorded music they will use also in studio. It's just a rearrangement of skills. Close your eyes and go thru the TV channels,.....hear it? headphone ....
MUSIC, MUSIC, MUSIC, & EFX, backing every show, Movie, Series, commercial, etc, etc, who do you think is creating that?As technology advances so does every thing people do in the world including the music industry. Out with the old in with the new.
Its just that wee the last of a generation to have both old & new in our lives....I know 30 yrs from now I prob wont be around to experience it, but man it's gonna be exciting whats gonna be happening in Music in the future,... keys
I find it exciting !! cool2

One guy with a loop library, or even libraries of pre-done tracks... Very little of what you hear on TV is custom recorded for that specific show. It's all licensed libraries nowadays.

They are slashing their production costs. For what? Is the show going broke? Hell no!

Greed, pure and simple.

Who's pocket, though..? Sure ain't ours!

I guess that's what's weird about America. No-one thinks THEY are working class. Everybody thinks and votes as if they were upper management, corporate executives and bank presidents!

Truth is, virtually NO-ONE is... But we love to vote for their ideals!
