NIU Marching Band Featured on Monday Night Football
The NIU Huskie Marching Band, under the direction of Dr. Thomas Bough, provided the halftime entertainment for the Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers game on ESPN's Monday Night Football on September 27. A capacity crowd of more than 61,000 was on hand to enjoy the music and excitement provided by the band, color guard and Silverettes dance corps. It was a thrilling experience for the band members, virtually all of whom look forward to another such opportunity.
The drumline of the NIU Huskie Marching Band met up with the Chicago Bears' drumline to mingle and for a photo op - five of the current members of the Chicago Bears' drumline are either current NIU students or alums!
