Music – 1984 – The Showband Of The Southwest – It Dont Mean A Thing + Stars And Stripes Forever

As seen in this video herewith…..the University of Texas Longhorn Band performs at halftime of a 1984 SWC home football game between the Texas Longhorns and the SMU Mustangs on October 27,1984….as the Showband of the Southwest performs some wonderful marching maneuvers and complicated geometrical configurations…..while playing a delightful rendition of Duke Ellington’s famous song It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Aint Got That Swing….which was followed by a rousing rendition of John Phillips Souza’s “Stars and Stripes Forever”.   

We here at ImaSportsphile are fortunate that Bone Daddy, the original Sportsphile, actually included the halftime show from many of the Southwest Conference football games that he taped back in the decade of the 1980’s…..which means that we have more than a handful of videos depicting performances by the Showband of the Southwest (UT Longhorn Marching Band)…..cuz they always put on a really good show.
