Badger Band in Kiel this Friday | News

The Kiel Area School District’s Performing Arts Center will be enlivened by the sound of a big band on Friday, February 18 at 7 p.m., as it hosts the Badger Marching Band in town for an all-night show .

The band, with Dr. Corey Pompey in his third year at the helm, will feature songs from many of the Badgers’ halftime shows of the 2021 football season. This will include selections from “We’re Back!” and the programs “Freedom”, the music of James Bond and Panic! At Disco, as well as “Country Classics”. And, of course, no Badger Band performance would be complete without the music of the famous Fifth Quarter, including the UW-Madison staples, “On, Wisconsin!” and “Varsity” as well as “Beer Barrel Polka”, “Dance Little Bird (Chicken Dance)”, “You’ve Said It All”, “Tequila”, and “Space Badgers”. One of the highlights of the show is sure to be the antics of the band members during these well-known classics.

Tickets for the Badger Marching Band’s Kiel show are $20 for adults and $15 for students and can be purchased online at (search for “Kiel”). Tickets will also be on sale at the PAC box office starting one hour before the 7 p.m. show.
