KU vs. Central Michigan University
Game kick-off time: 2:30 p.m.
Parade start time (Mass. St.): 9:00 a.m.
The KU Bands are proud to announce our 2014 Band Day! Our traditional Band Day festivities begin with a 9:00 a.m. parade down Massachusetts Street in downtown Lawrence, which is followed by a massed band rehearsal at Memorial Stadium. The massed bands will then perform at halftime of the KU vs. Central Michigan University football game. The game kicks off at 2:30 p.m.
The halftime music will consist of the following selections:
I’m a Jayhawk
Stand Up and Cheer

Patriotic Finale is arranged by Robert Foster, and has been used in previous Band Day halftimes.
Additional details, including a schedule for the day, will be emailed to bands in August. We are making efforts to further enhance the experience for our visiting directors and bands, and hope that you’ll consider joining us for this great event. If you have further questions, please contact Ms. Sharon Toulouse, Assistant Director of Bands, at email@example.com, or contact the band office at 785-864-3367.
NOTE: Due to television contracts, we may not know the kickoff time until approximately twelve days prior to Band Day. We will email the kickoff time to the participating bands as soon as we find out. In the event that the kickoff time is early, we will cancel the massed band rehearsal and halftime performance. The parade will still be held downtown, and bands will be able to watch the game in Memorial Stadium.
