WG Marching Band At OSU
The West Geauga Marching Band represented the district in the 2013 Buckeye Invitational on Oct. 12. The band is directed by Mr. Jason Branch and assisted by Mrs. Beth Davis. The 2013 WGMB consists of 115 members, and is the largest student organization at West G.
The Buckeye Invitational is a competitive festival of bands, where 35 bands from all over Ohio come to the campus of The Ohio State University to perform their halftime shows on the field of the football stadium. The WGMB played music from their “Chicago” show, which includes the songs “Make Me Smile,” “Saturday in the Park,” “25 or 6 to 4,” “Hard to Say I’m Sorry” and “Getaway”. The Horseshoe generally holds 105,000 football fans on college game days, and the west side of the stadium was filled with thousands of people throughout the day watching high school marching bands perform.
The Ohio State University Marching Band (often called The Best Damn Band in the Land, or TBDBITL) closed out the evening with one of its halftime performances and an amazing performance of Script Ohio. Notable West G Wolverines who have been members of TBDBITL include Maria Cosenza (mellophone ’04-’08), Frank Cosenza (sousaphone ’09, I-Dotter in Script Ohio) and Becca DeMattia (mellophone ’06-’10).
Mr. Branch, a former trumpet player in TBDBITL, along with the West Geauga Marching Band were happy and proud to see so many parents and fans of the band travel to Columbus to cheer them on during this outstanding performance.
