Marching Band Practice
Under blue skies on Demonstration Field, the Spartan Marching Band practiced this afternoon. Their third performance day, at tomorrow afternoon's football game with Youngstown State, just might be the first game of this season without any rain. For two weeks straight, the band and team and football fans have been evacuated from Spartan Stadium due to heavy rain and lightning in East Lansing.
Tomorrow's halftime show, featuring a James Bond theme, includes a jazzy version of "Goldfinger" that should rock the stadium. At practice today, the band was in fine form and worked hard perfecting the music and marching that make them the Number One reason to see a football game at Michigan State.
