Penn State Blue Band Releases Hype Video

Blue Band

The Blue Band released its official #BlueBandHype video just in time for the game on Saturday.

“This hype video is important for all fans and members of the Penn State Football community because it represents the support and energy we bring to every game day,” Blue Band Design Chair Cara Burke said. Burke produced the video with the help of the band’s design team.

The one minute and seventeen second clip takes you behind-the-scenes and on the field with the band. It features members of the Blue Band, Blue Sapphire Rachel Reiss, drum major Jimmy Frisbie, and the band’s new director, Greg Drane.

“The Blue Band is extremely excited to be back in Beaver Stadium this weekend to support Penn State Football and to bring them the ultimate home-field advantage. We understand our duty to the Football Team, the university, and to our fans to bring them the ultimate game-day experience, and our student and staff members have been working tirelessly over the past few months to make that happen,” Blue Band President Pat Burke said.

The best marching band in the country is preparing to raise the song for its 116th season.
