Ladies and gentlemen — This evening, the MOB would like to honor again the humor of Groucho, Harpo, Chico, and Zeppo with a few remarx.
Band comes out to tape, then Band forms (M?)
There you have it – the remarxable Marxing Owl Band!
Whenever a Marching Band pays tribute, they play an appropriate tune and demonstrate how well they can march and countermarch up and down the field.
The MOB, trying hard for all the alumni, thus demonstrates their own way to marx and countermarx up and down the field, to the music of ... what else? ... "Viva Marx!"
MOB does "marxing" show.
After some time, forms:
Hammer and popsicle
The MOB now salutes the other Marx brother, Karl, by forming a hammer and popsicle (after all, it is a cold war!) and playing a song by Lennon: "Revolution."
Band plays, then goes into tower
The MOB has now formed a football and an academic tower with a clock (at UT they call this a clockwork orange) to salute a famous Marx Brothers movie, the timeless Horsefeathers. Groucho becomes the president of Huxley College, which has had one per year since 1888. (Sound familiar??) Wishing to cast no aspersions, Groucho expounds his own view of football and academics.
[play audio clip from tape]
Band plays "Football Hero", knocks off clock.
This concludes our half time show. Thank you and good night. We now turn the program over to other homecoming activities.
In keeping with MOB tradition, we now present the UT band director, Dr. Vincent DeNino with the LARGEST Groucho face in the world!!!
