The Wildcat Marching Band needs help to get to Charlotte!

Big Blue Nation, The Wildcat Marching Band needs your help to get to the Belk Bowl.

According to Dana Biggs, the Director of Athletic Bands, the band was preparing the trailer to go to Charlotte for the Belk Bowl this afternoon and realized the break valve is rusted and needs to be replaced. That has to happen TODAY or the trailer, which includes all of their instruments, uniforms, etc., may not be able to make the trip. Given the short notice and the holiday week, finding help has been difficult.

If you can help, please contact them @UKWildcatBand, Biggs’ Facebook page, or email [email protected] Let’s get the band to Charlotte!

UPDATE: Good news! Help is on the way. Thank you to everyone who reached out. The BBN always comes through.

    It is inexcusable to comprehend that the University of Kentucky does not better maintain its equipment. What if this had been the bus used to take a team to the airport or an out of town venue? Failed brakes (not “breaks”) can lead to accidents involving not only UK personnel but other travelers as well.
