Feed Blue Thunder for a Season
Did you know that a typical game day for those in the Blue Thunder Marching Band is an 8-hour time commitment? All in all, there are two warm-ups, a dress rehearsal on the Blue, a pep band that plays during the Bronco Walk, tailgate parade for the fans outside Albertsons Stadium, Pregame and Halftime performances, and provide Bronco Nation with music and entertainment in the stands from kickoff through the conclusion of the game. It can be very exhausting for the ensemble!
A major way we attempt to maintain the marching band's energy level throughout game day is to make sure they're well-fed. Before we depart the Keith and Catherine Stein Band Hall in full-uniform to tailgate, we try to provide the best meal we can for the entire band. It's such a basic concept that goes a long way to ensuring that Bronco Nation witnesses Blue Thunder at the band's highest level during every home game!
