25779406_0The Boston University Band is preparing to perform with international indie-pop sensation “Foster the People” this Friday, June 15th. The BU Band will take the stage with “Foster the People” at the Bank of America Pavilion in Boston to perform their latest hit “Houdini.” Promoters and management from Live Nation contacted BU a few months ago in an effort to book the Marching Band to perform “Houdini,” having seen the BU Band perform onstage at Fenway Park for a J. Geils Band & Aerosmith show in the summer of 2010. (The BU Band has also been featured in the 2003 movie Mystic River, has been a performing ensemble on the TV game show “Wheel of Fortune,” and the BU Drum Line performed at a private party for the New England Patriots after their Super Bowl Championship in 2005.) When asked about their upcoming performance, BU Band Director Aaron Goldberg said, “We are beyond excited to perform with ‘Foster the People’….they put on such a great show with such great energy, and we are happy to help augment that. The BU Band has done a great job preparing the song ‘Houdini’….you know it’s a great tune when you just can’t get it out of your head. We are looking forward to rocking out HARD with ‘Foster the People’ on Friday night!”
