UW Band Director Mike Leckrone gives concert preview on "Wake Up"


When you hear them you can't help but get up and get excited. The UW Varsity Band members know how to command a crowd. Their Director, Mike Leckrone dropped by Wake Up Wisconsin to give us a preview of this year's annual concert. Leckrone says it will be bigger and better than ever, with handclapping Badger favorites, multimedia displays, dramatic pyrotechnics and aerial stunts performed by Leckrone himself.

"It's like an indoor Fifth Quarter," he says. "We have plenty of room this year and we want all Badger fans to help us celebrate."

Special guests include tuba player Nat McIntosh and trumpet player Grant Manhart. The concert runs April 18-20th at the Kohl Center. Tickets are $22. For reservations or ticket information, visit badgerband.com or call 608-265-4120.
