Band members cite lack of sleep, grueling rehearsals | Air Force Times | airforcetimes.com

There is one thing that both critics and supporters of Tops in Blue agree on: Being part of the group is no vacation.

Former members of Tops in Blue said the pace of touring and rehearsing is grueling, and sleep is hard to come by.

β€œI wish it were 12-hour days,” Staff Sgt. Brittney Perry said when asked if Tops in Blue members regularly worked 12 hours a day. β€œIt was normally 18 hours. It was hell. There was one [stretch] we pulled 36 hours. Because of a lack of sleep, our entire team was sick. There were a lot of injuries. A lack of sleep, it just messes with your body.”

Does the Air Force enlist whiners, or do they teach that at Lackland?

    In my days (USAF: 1965-1968 and USAF Res: 1978-1990) it did not. However, today it does seem to have an undue share of them.
