    Should the Mad T Party band be removed?

    Let me just start of bh saying that I love Mad T Party, and I have a lot of fun there. that being said I noticed while the band was playing , people weren't really in to it, but when the dj can everybody was dancing and having a good time. Even my friend who I was with said " they should just take out the band and keep the dj" and to be honest, I wasn't really into the band either. I think I would enjoy it more if the band was gone, and they just had alice, tweedle dee, tweedle dum, and the mad hatter as host like electronica (maybe they could have english accents).What do you guys think?

    That was not the experience I had when we visited. Everyone was very much into the band.

    I think it all matters on what time you get to the Mad T Party and how many drinks have been consumed.

    I haven't gotten to experience the Mad T Party yet, but I sure hope not. I can play recorded music in my car.

    Get rid of the band. They play the same exact sets every day... and they're not that great. People seem to enjoy the DJs more, and why shouldn't they? They're doing something different. The DJ is setting a party vibe... which is what Mad T Party is.

    The band is nothing more than a half-rate cover band, who plays Maroon 5 and Journey songs. If I wanted to see a cheap cover band, I'd go to my local dive bar... not a Disney park.

    I think it's more their playlist that needs help. They're playing a lot of cliche standards that don't fit the party theme. They need to ditch the rock stuff and just stick to dance covers and I think it'd be fine. The mood shifts too much from the band and the dj. They should also set it up so you can give a request to the DJ. Hopefully it wouldn't get out of control though.

    The band wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be, but I agree. I also don't really enjoy how the stages are split, I found myself running back and forth last time I was there to see the performers.

    I though the band was better then the DJ. I which they get rid of him and keep the band. When I was there more people around me and my family like the band more then the DJ.

    They also need to use second stage. It's really sloppy how they leave it dark. Why not use the Queen of Hearts for something?

    I think the issue is it's setup like a dance, not a concert. People don't just wanna hear old standards you can only wave your hands to.

    I like the band but they need improvement. By opening night I was already sick of the same old sets.

    I still can't figure out how being a cheerleader with a record player has come to be seen as some sort of talent.

    I hate to break it to you, but every show at the DLR is exactly the same every day. Everyone does not get to go to the Mad T Party daily...

    If I wanted to hear pop music, I'd go.... pretty much anywhere. If I wanted to hear club music, I'd go to a club. If I wanted to hear a non-cover band, I'd go to a concert. If I want to see live performers in Disney themed shows, I go to Mad T.

    Don't make Mad T Party into something it is not. I think the playlist could use some work, but let's not ditch the whole band!
    Disneyland Wooooh!

    I saw em on Friday, and I didn't think they were bad.

    Now, that arcade on the other hand... can we please have some video games back in there?

    The live band was purposely added to avoid too much connection to the "rave" culture. Disney gets to keep the electronic/dubstep music and pyschedelic visuals, while claiming it is all ages by playing live music with an older rock oriented list. They try to attract everyone by keeping the pendulum from swinging too much in one direction.

    By the way, the DJ sets are essentially the same every night, so not sure why people would lodge this complaint against the band. If I hear "Party Rock Anthem" again....
