The LSU Tiger Marching Band was on showcase Wednesday in the annual Tigerama. Featuring the 325-piece marching band and the LSU Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Winds in a combined ensemble.
Earlier this month, the concert, its school-day performance and VIP reception were canceled when the events coordinator resigned. Director of Bands Damon Talley, who is directing the event, said staff members in LSU’s Department of Bands couldn’t handle the workload.
That’s when former Tiger Band drum major Rob Dowie stepped in to take over as coordinator. Though he is owner and operator of the statewide business SELA Aquatics, Dowie admitted he’s never put together an event as big as Tigerama.
