The MSU band's role in a big game

John Madden is associate professor of music, associate director of bands, and director of the Spartan Marching Band at Michigan State University. Professor Madden and the Spartan Brass will be embedded in the Izzone tonight as the Spartans square off against the Michigan Wolverines for their first-ever meeting as Top-10 ranked teams.

WKAR’s Peter Whorf joined John Madden on the Breslin Center floor before last week’s win over Minnesota. Peter and John looked ahead to the coming March madness and talked about Spartan Brass performances at football and basketball rivalry games.

The game is tonight at 9 p.m. at the Breslin Center.
