    Dancing With The Stars has fired its longtime band director, along with his 28 member band, and will bring in a "small electric band" that is meant to cater to a younger audience. The former band director, Harold Wheeler, has been with the show for seventeen consecutive seasons.

    Executive producers of Dancing With The Stars hinted at the end of last season that they were looking to go in a new direction when Conrad Green, one of the shows top producers, gave an interview that said recorded music will inevitably make its way onto the show.

    Do we have any Dancing With The Stars fans on the site? Are you frustrated that the show is dropping its long time band director on the hopes that it will broaden the audience?
