Everyone loves a good football game, and the Colorado School of Mines Marching Band is no exception. After being sidelined with the rest of the Mine’s athletic teams last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mines band is ready to get back into the swing of things and attended the very first home football game of the year on Thursday, September 2, 2021. The band had a blast performing some of their most popular stand tunes, including “Hey Baby”, “Seven Nation Army”, and “Pirates of the Caribbean”.
“I’m so excited to be back!” said Lizzie Bruce, a senior in the Mines Marching Band “I’m glad we’re able to have football games for my senior year!” When asked about what her favorite part of football games are, Lizzie laughed and responded ‘The band! I enjoy seeing all the other clubs and organizations too, but I love how music brings energy to the game,”
The Mines football team won their first home game of the season against Western Oregon 42 – 3 on Thursday night and is setting up for another spectacular season. A Mines football game is always guaranteed to be a good one, especially when the band is involved! Be sure to keep an eye out for the Mines football team’s biggest plaid-wearing, music-playing fans at the next game!
