Minnesota’s Mound of Sound

The University of Minnesota Marching Band is known for its “Mound of Sound” formation in which the entire band, 300 players and instruments, squeezes into a mound a little more than 12 yards, or 11 meters wide, while still playing.  That is real togetherness!  In this video they start the formation almost 4 minutes in.  The show is best watched at full screen.

Oh, and this is their fight song.
