The Fort Sill 77th Army Band performed at the Akin Auditorium on the Midwestern State University campus Tuesday night.

The showcase concert gave the band a chance to feature the variety of music they play.

They did everything from jazz to a song by the rock group Radiohead, but they still kept that traditional military sound alive with drums and bagpipes.

Christopher McFann, the Senior Drum Major, said being at MSU is important to them, so they can show students what the army band offers.

“MSU being a music focus school, we just wanted to present what we can do and different capabilities that they can look for,” said McFann.

He said for students interested in joining the Army Band he would tell them it is the best job in the military. He adds he has been doing this for 15 years.

However, it was not just Mustangs in the audience, lots of Wichita Falls residents also came out and enjoyed the show. 

McFann said in addition to doing what they love they are also proud to represent the entire United States military.
