UW Marching Band ready for Badgers' 1st game against UMass

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The UW Marching Band is ready for the football season as Wisconsin kicks off against UMass Saturday at 11:00 a.m.

UW Band Director Mike Leckrone and some of his crew were on a special Badger Bash edition of Wake Up Wisconsin Friday to warm up for the game. Leckrone says they put in a lot of hard work and the training can be very physical.

Leckrone joked about how long he's been the director, saying he wasn't sure how much longer he could do it with how hot and humid practices have been, but assured Badger fans he'll be around for awhile.
