KU Band Day
The KU Bands are proud to announce our 2015 Band Day! Our traditional Band Day festivities begin with a 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 University of Memphis vs. KU football game.
The halftime music will consist of the following selections:
I’m a Jayhawk
Stand Up and Cheer
Carry On Wayward Son
Sheet music for the four fight songs can be downloaded from the following link:
Carry on Wayward Son is arranged by Michael Sweeney and published by Hal Leonard, and is available through various music retailers.
Additional details, including a schedule for the day, will be emailed to bands in August. If you have further questions, please contact Ms. Sharon Toulouse, Assistant Director of Bands, at firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
