Sometimes You Have To Shove The Trombone Player So You Can Kick

Sure, it's inconvenient when you want to kick and you're hemmed in by some big stupid marching band. But on the other hand, do you know a better way to simulate kicking in the midst of an onrushing defense? » 9/07/14 5:58pm 9/07/14 5:58pm

Ohio State Band Performance Reenacts Civil War, Gettysburg Address

The Ohio State marching band is back doing fun stuff. This time it's celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, and it's complete with marching soldiers and firing cannons. Very cool! » 11/24/13 2:53pm 11/24/13 2:53pm

Film-Themed Ohio State Band Performance Features T-Rex Eating Someone

The Ohio State band performed an impressive Michael Jackson tribute last week. Yesterday, the band played a medley of movie theme songs, which doesn't sound that impressive until you watch Harry Potter riding on a broomstick or a T-Rex walking across the field and remember, "Oh yeah, those are people." » 10/27/13 10:40am 10/27/13 10:40am

Ohio University Marching 110 Does It Again, Covers Ylvis' "The Fox"

The last time we checked in on the Ohio University Marching 110, they were doing a "pretty good" rendition of Psy's "Gangnam Style." (Their performance of "Party Rock Anthem" isn't bad, either.) But during halftime of last night's bout against Marshall, the 110 gave their take on The Song Of The Summer. » 9/15/13 12:00pm 9/15/13 12:00pm

The Rice Marching Band Took Some Halftime Shots At "U$C"

Thanks to Logan who sent in this photo of the Rice MOB (Marching Owl Band)'s performance at halftime of last night's season opener against UCLA. It seems, judging from Twitter, that the entire show was USC-themed—maybe some common ground with their Bruin opponents, or maybe just taking advantage of the Owls' only game… » 8/31/12 9:45am 8/31/12 9:45am

Bowl-Bound Schools Save Money By Spending Less Money

Our Band Can Beat Up Your Jocks

Some science egghead says that marching band is just as difficult as football: "You get a level of competition and athleticism that is equal to a Division I athletic program." Someone should give that guy a wedgie. [Reuters] » 6/03/09 4:00pm 6/03/09 4:00pm
