GREAT POST Niner Nation! Thanks so much for that link.
Yes Dansk I also sought out Marvin Branson's Star Spangled Banner on the link. I feel it is the #1 ALL TIMER the BBMM performed. When I was hearing it live, it brought goose bumps to my spine, and tears to my eyes. The term "inspirational" understates the impact of that magnificent interpretation of our Banner. Branson was a musical arrangement genius.
My Favorites are in no order: CSULB Fight Song, Ja Da, Superstar, Copacobana, Feels So Good, Turn the Beat Around and In the Stone.
Here is BBMM Alumni Band in 2015 sharing Branson's vision of our nation's song.
Thanks for that link. I was in the band when they recorded many of those tracks. Especially loved Maleguena. That one, and several others, were live performances for the All Western Band Review Awards Ceremony at the Long Beach Arena.
Sadly, I just missed the Scotland trip, but our former PA announcer, Dan Smith, was on that trip.
I just wish they'd included a recording of Marvin Branson's National Anthem arrangement. Still the best version I've ever heard, or had the honor to play.
My brother performed in an event in Scotland as a member of the BBMM in 1980.
Yes, we have that album as my wife was a member of the LB band in 68 to 70. The good old days!
The Big Brown Marching Band was WONDERFUL. If I remember correctly, they even had their own record album!!!!
It sure was fun times when we played football especially back in the 70s and 80s and we had the best Marching Band who always put on a great halftime show.
Probably has the most highly rated QB in their history transferred in, a former 5 star who followed his high school coach there. See if it elevates them.
Hasn't done much at D1 level, but I find news about our Big West brethren and their football programs interesting. Also have a few bounce back transfers.
Was fun watching Sac State run the table until a close crazy loss in the playoffs.
