Big anniversary for the Fightin’s in-house furry band. The Mascot Band turned 20 over the weekend and the team took notice.
The Mascot Band promotes not only learning music theory at a young age, but also discovering playing with a love of music. Their philosophy is that everyone should play an instrument at some point in their life. “You should practice often, with the goal of becoming the best musician possible, however, don’t wait until you’re an expert to just get up in front of your family and friends and HAVE FUN playing music!”
The Mascot Band was also a 2019 Best of Gameops.com Winner for best Entertainment Group. Great use of innovative entertainment that is perfectly on-brand for the team. Their ensemble cast of characters including mascots, the band and the Crazy Hot Dog Vendor provides a variety of traditions and interactions for fans.
The Phils promotional schedule is always top notch, and a big part of the reason Cudo picked the Phillies Affiliates in the big MILB draft with Ben Hill on the April 2021 Party in the Back Podcast. (and to strike back at Ben for taking his childhood team)
