Alumni to join up with LSU Tiger Marching Band
BATON ROUGE - More than 700 members of the LSU Tiger Marching Band will take to the field at halftime during next Saturday's football game against Kentucky as alumni and students combine to form a massive Golden Band from Tigerland of past and present.
Along with the current 325 students in the band, Tiger band alumni including musicians, Tigerettes, Golden Girls and Colorguard will take part in the Oct. 18 halftime show that will be the second-largest band performance in the history of Tiger Band Reunion. Now in its 28th year, the reunion is sponsored by the LSU Alumni Association in conjunction with the Tiger Marching Band.
"We have had a record-breaking response from Tiger Band alumni musicians who are attending from 22 states across the nation," said Cliff Vannoy, association president. "We know the fans in Tiger Stadium will enjoy the show as much as the alumni band members will enjoy performing."
The halftime performance is just the centerpiece of a weekend of reunion activities for marching band alumni on LSU's campus. Alumni will attend a casual social at the Lod Cook Alumni Center on Friday night and will be treated to breakfast Saturday before a rehearsal at the LSU Indoor Practice Facility. It all wraps up with a pre-game tailgate party scheduled to happen at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.
If you're an alumni of the band that would like to participate in the historic reunion, contact Brandi Roberts of the alumni association at (225) 578-3852 or register online at www.lsualumni.org.
