They do use the more marching style of it, but they’ve used the classic styles too. I would agree that the acoustics do not fit what they are trying to do. It’s set up for open air but the area is enclosed. That’s why I rather see the drums muted some, allowing the other instruments to not be mic’ed and playing at regular levels. Would sound so much better.

Something I've always wondered: are the opening and closing number original arrangements of existing songs? For example, the closing number sounds very close to the arrangement of Malaguena performed in "Blast!". The opening song sounds like it might be inspired by Star Trek: The Next Generation. Is there a chance that one might find the same songs and arrangements elsewhere?

Really need to rewatch to figure that out. The closes I could come is Malaguena from Blast, but just a very different twist put on it. Infact the more I listen to the show the more I'm impressed with whoever arranged the entire thing. That opening has the touch of a few different tunes I recognize from some of my grandparents records.

This really is stuck somewhere between being Stomp and Blast but never really fully fulfills being either. But is really entertaining.

Here is a spherical audio recording of Mix It Up. This recording is experimental so the link is only visible here for now. It was taken from the audience left side of the theater, opposite the photo which was taken on a different date.

The audio was recorded at the full volume, but I turned it down by about 50% so it wouldn't blast out anyone's eardrums. Now you can set the volume it to your liking. Enjoy!

Sorry for the double post. When I posted the recording above I remembered hearing that the cast of MIU calls the finale song "Rutabaga." I remembered this because at the 14:40 mark the cast shouts "Rutabaga!" Yes, the song is based on Malaguena, but somebody was more creative about the name. Has anybody else heard about this?
