A football game just wouldn’t be the same without music- music from a high school marching band, that is. Intermission may be the time many sports fans head to the concessions, but let’s admit it, once the band starts to play, you’re tapping your toes the entire time. Nothing livens up a long queue like a moldy oldie, or a familiar sports tune with a great beat. While proud moms and dads kick back in their seats, to take in the halftime show, the musicians perform on the field, following countless hours of rehearsal- with help from companies like Catfish Music. Whether you’re attending a game under the Friday night lights, or an NFL game, cameras remain focused on the field, in anticipation of the high school band’s halftime performance.
Sports enthusiasts are no doubt familiar with the regular flow of musical favorites. If you’ve ever wondered, while standing in the concession line, what the name was, of the song the band was playing, you may be surprised to know that there is a regular list of football favorites played during games. The next time a familiar tune is played by the local high school marching band, it just may be one of these top ten halftime songs.
