Auburn Marching Band One Of Seven Finalists In ESPN's Battle Of The Bands
Oct. 7, 2008
AUBURN - The Auburn University Marching Band is currently competing against six other collegiate bands in ESPN's online Battle of the Bands. The Auburn Band was selected by ESPN and Paramount pictures as one of seven bands in the country to participate. Each band selected was asked to perform the theme music from the latest Indiana Jones movie, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The videos are posted on ESPN.com for fans to vote for their favorite performance. The winning band will be featured on ESPN's College GameDay on October 11th, and will receive a $25,000 donation.
In addition to voting, fans can enter to win a grand prize trip to an ESPN-televised bowl game (excluding the Capital One Bowl and the Rose Bowl Game) or one of 25 copies of the quintessential Indiana Jones DVD box set, The Complete Adventure Collection, personally signed by Harrison Ford. Fans may vote for their favorite band once per day.
Joining Auburn in the competition are bands from Clemson, Georgia, Florida, LSU, USC and Texas. The winner is decided by an online vote. Fans can vote at the following web site:
