U-Md. marching band wins $25,000 challenge with 'Book em Danno'
The University of Maryland marching band won $25,000 in a national competition, the Hawaii Five-0 Marching Band Madness, it was announced late Monday.
The band, called the Mighty Sound of Maryland, won with a performance in which it first spelled out Hawaii Five-0, and then “Book em Danno.” If you don’t know what that means, you never watched "Hawaii Five-0" on television.
Watch the performance video above -- it’s a hoot.
Not a bad way to win $25,000.
