Watch Two College Marching Bands Join Forces to Perform an Epic Game of Thrones Halftime Tribute

Watching the elaborately-choreographed routines of college football marching bands always leaves me wondering how those students find the time to rehearse and perfect those performances. This recent Game of Thrones-themed halftime show was so grandiose that it actually required two college marching bands to join forces to recreate Westeros.

At last Saturday’s University of Michigan versus Penn State University college football game, the Michigan Marching Band and the Penn State Blue Band took to the field at halftime to perform a series of songs from the HBO series’ soundtrack, including “Rains of Castamere,” “Winds of Winter,” and the show’s iconic main title theme. There were dragons and house crests—but no spoilers, if for some reason you haven’t completely caught up on the show.

Band Geek + Regular Geek colliding = always entertaining. Even when I have no clue about the source material, it still looks really cool.

It’s actually the folks that choreograph these shows that deserve a great deal of credit. Once that’s hashed out, the musicians at this level are pros at making it work. Repetition and lots of practice time.
