RE: Aug 28, 2011 report.
Thank you for recognizing U of Michigan's pre-game in your top list. Being in the band for 5 football seasons ...... performing the FIRST pre-game as a freshman, not anticipating what to expect because I had never been to a game, and hearing that ROAR when we formed the "Block M" was an absolutely indescribable thrilling experience. I grew up in another state, was interested in the field of Music, had NO IDEA about Michigan football, nor the Michigan Marching Band. I simply thought it would be "something to do." Holy Moly.
Performing pre-game at the Lions stadium when Billy Simms ran out and thru our band during his rookie season was deafening ..... but playing the first chord of "The M Fanfare" at pre-game was UNBELIEVABLE. I will NEVER forget that shock. To FEEL that ROAR in an outdoor stadium was such a rush each home game in The Big House .... In September sun or November snow .....
