Marian University’s Big Band 2012 Concert Hosts Gym Class Heroes

March 15, 2012

For its 2012 Big Band event, Marian University will welcome popular rap/rock band Gym Class Heroes to its campus on Thursday, March 29 in the Sadoff Gymnasium.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for opening act The Super Happy Fun Club, followed by the Gym Class Heroes performing songs from last year’s The Papercut Chronicles II as well as previous hits. The band was chosen based on student opinion within the parameters of the available budget.

“The Big Band Committee developed a survey in which we tried to determine the genre or genres of most interest among the Marian undergraduate students,” says Steve Rumbuc, student senate parliamentarian. “Based on these results, we felt Gym Class Heroes would reflect the wants of a larger portion of the student body because of their eclectic trans-genre-type sound. Hopefully, this is the case!”

Ticket sales have opened up to the public for $30 each and are available at the Marian Office of Student Life (920-923-7666), Mike’s Music in Fond du Lac or online at
