BC Band rocks Boston

What's more Political/Celtic Punk than using a college marching band as back up? Very cool move by the Dropkick Murphys to invite the horn section to join them at a concert Tuesday. I am also glad BC's taking back this song. The Sox and Celtics started playing recordings of the Murphys' tune during their championship runs, but our Band played it live shortly after the Departed debuted. Once again, the Band represents. They've come a long way from my day where they kept doing Lion King medleys at halftime.

Here's another (higher quality) video, but it's not full length, unfortunately.

Oh, and it wasn't just horns, there were woodwinds, drums, and dancers there too.

Being on that stage was one of the coolest experiences of my life. It was AMAZING.

If you go to a home game this fall, you owe it to yourself to check out the band pre-game on the north steps of Conti. When they burst into "Shipping Up to Boston" I get immedaitely fired up for the game.

I think the band conmbined with the SuperFan students have made the game day experience much closer to big-time college football. The scene still has a long, long way to go (try showing up for the kick-offs folks--is one more drink really more important than your team?)but it has also come a long way since I was a student in the late 80's.

The Dropkick Murphys also do a great rendition of "For Boston", they've been doing it for years. It would be great to hear them do that with the BC band.
