BDBITL Performs At Rose Parade and Rose Bowl

The Ohio State University Marching Band will start off 2019 with a bang, a highlight performance on one of the biggest stages for collegiate marching bands.

The marching band got to perform at the 130th Rose Parade and at the coveted Rose Bowl Game (105th). The marching band’s other highlights from the previous year include their debut at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

For their performance at the Rose Parade, the marching band thrilled crowds in sunny California across the 5-mile route. Other marching bands from across the country joined the Ohio State University’s marching band in decorating floral themed floats. This years grand marshal, pop star Chaka Khan, and gave a performance to begin the parade.
The marching band will perform on facing the west side of the stadium during the Rose Bowl.

Washington’s band performs first at the pregame and both bands will come together in a display of good sportsmanship to play “God Bless America.” The Ohio State pregame show will include a double Script Ohio march for both sides of the stadium. Ohio State being the home team means the marching band will also have the honor of performing the national anthem.

Finally, the marching band will perform first at halftime.
