Racer Band, one show only

For the first time this fall on Saturday night, the strains of "The Old Grey Mare" were heard reverberating throughout Murray State University's Roy Stewart Stadium, courtesy of the Murray State University Racer Band. The band gave a private performance for mostly family and close friends Saturday in what will be its only actual on-field show of the semester. The band performs for home football games but that has not happened this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, that did not stop the 185 students from putting together the show under first-year Racer Band Director Brent Johnson, a Racer Band alumnus and former drum major.
