Hawkeye band includes local musicians

Several local musicians have been chosen top be part of the 2020 Hawkeye Marching Band, known as Band 140 by members. Normally, the band is the sound and heartbeat of historic Kinnick Stadium during the Hawkeyes' home games. In addition to the many contributions to the game-day environment inside Kinnick, the HMB always performs pregame concerts in the UI Recreation Building located immediately northwest of Kinnick Stadium. Unfortunately, this year, the band will not be playing at football games.
