The "Blast from the Past," Longhorn Alumni Band, returned home to the University of Texas this past weekend to take part in the annual Longhorn Alumni Band Day.
Festivities for Alumni Band weekend, kicked off on Friday at Scholz Garten, where the sisters of Tau Beta Sigma, along with prospective members, helped set-up and check-in alumni participating in the Alumni Band weekend.
On Saturday morning, the TBS executive council served donuts to alumni members and the alumni check-in process continued. Following check-in, over 700 alumni joined together in the Bubble to learn their portion of the halftime show for the UT vs. Kansas game. At the end of their rehearsal, the current members of the Longhorn Band joined their rehearsal to practice the joint performance of Stars and Stripes Forever.
At the game, following the performance of March Grandioso and March of the Longhorns by the Longhorn Alumni Band at halftime, the Longhorn Band performed their halftime show which included the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. After LHB performed, LHB and LHAB joined together, with over 1,100 people on the field, to pay tribute to veterans through the mass performance of Stars and Stripes Forever.
Alumni weekend concluded with a 42-27 Texas Football victory over Kansas and a combined parade block with LHB and LHAB back to the band hall. We look forward to watching Texas take on West Virginia next week from the comfort of our homes.
