Several Oscoda High School Band members travelled to Mt. Pleasant on Saturday, September 14 to participate in "Band Day".  Over 1750 high school students representing 47 Michigan High Schools joined the 300 member Chippewa Marching Band to perform music of Elton John during halftime of the CMU/University of Akron football game.  The massed band began with "Crocodile Rock", continued with "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" and "Your Song".  The bands finished their performance with "The Fighting Chippewa" before helping to cheer the Chippewas on to a 45-24 victory.
