The Marching Colonels
How do you get as good as EKU’s Marching Colonels? Practice, practice, practice. From band camp to pregame warmups to three rehearsals per week, the Marching Colonels are always focused on getting better so they can put on a great performance.
The band recently showed off the results of all that hard work at EKU’s first football game of the season. At EKU’s match-up against Morehead State August 30, the Marching Colonels kept the crowd hyped with a selection of fan-favorite pep songs. They wowed with their halftime show, which included renditions of Imagine Dragons' Believer and Fall Out Boy's Phoenix.
It was an especially triumphant return, as budget constraints threatened to cause the discontinuation of the Marching Colonels last spring. However, passionate students, employees and donors resurrected the band with some creative financing and restructuring. Here’s to many more decades of tradition!
