Check out what Purdue band formed at halftime

At halftime of the Purdue-Michigan State on Saturday afternoon, the Boilermakers’ marching band put on a performance that caught our attention. Motorcycle enthusiasts will find it interesting, too. Yes, the band formed a motorcycle, and it even included “exhaust” for when it moved across the field. It was really cool, and you can watch it below.

my high school marching band did a bicycle while we played bicycle race by queen at a national marching band competition in Indianapolis and the wheels even turned… where is our national recognition
Davenport Central High School in Davenport Iowa 2008 “Any way the wind blows the music of Queen”

And, NB… That looks more like a typo than a grammatical error… 😉

    We mistakenly had it as Michigan State band at first and corrected the error. Thank you.

With that white smoke, it looks like a blown head gasket.

Nice formation, but have you seen the University of Minnesota’s “Mound of Sound”?

Bad knock off of tOSU marching band TBDBITL, at least we can make things look like they are in motion, not great but alright for a decent marching band.

Doug, as a former member of TBDBITL, it is not Ohio State’s style to ridicule other bands. The Big Ten has all the best bands, Purdue included. Sure, I’m proud of the video game show, Thriller show, Gettysburg show, Hollywood show, etc… But I can appreciate Purdue’s show as well. I enjoyed the chopper, Boilers!

Stay classy, Buckeyes!
