Pregame Victors Walk Band
From the Michigan Marching Band E-newsletter sent today:
The 2008 Season
The MMB is excited to welcome Coach Rich Rodriguez and his staff to the University of Michigan and will continue to support the team in any way possible.
One of the exciting new activities this season will be the Victors Walk, which will take place roughly two hours prior to kick-off of home football games. Select members of the MMB (approximately 25) will be on hand to play The Victors as the team arrives at Michigan Stadium and enters the locker room.
Also new this year will be the tune performed by the MMB at the end of the third quarter. Coach Rod has asked for the Band to get the crowd fired up and ready for the fourth quarter. To that end, we're going to give you all a fever! Bring your cowbell and play along to Blue Oyster Cult's Don't Fear the Reaper.
Finally, at the request of the coaching staff, to assist with the team's new no-huddle offense, the MMB will no longer play in between downs while Michigan is on offense during the football games. We have some great new defensive cheers ready to go, so be sure to listen for those and participate with the MMB as we cheer our team on to victory!
