PSU Band goes Hollywood with music for next Will Ferrell movie

PITTSBURG, Kan. — Current and former members of Pittsburg State University’s Pride of the Plains Marching Band are back on campus today to record several songs for an upcoming Hollywood movie starring Will Ferrell.

Director of Athletics Bands Doug Whitten said the opportunity to record the music came about because of his association with Chris Fogel, an award-winning film scoring mixer, recording engineer and producer.

In return for recording “Taking Care of Business” and a few other songs, the marching band will get a professional recording made of the PSU Fight Song.
