Video: The music of Santana powers Ohio State halftime

Guitar virtuoso Carlos Santana inspired a rocking halftime show during the football game against Maryland this weekend.

The Ohio State University Marching Band dipped into a musical catalogue that stretches across four decades. The band played “Evil Ways,” “Smooth,” “All I Ever Wanted,” and more of the hits from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member.

Some of the featured formations included a Santana logo from the Abraxas album while performing “Yaleo” and a version of Santana’s iconic hat with two guitars for “Black Magic Woman.”

To help fuel the Latin sound of the songs, the band was joined on the field by more than a dozen special guest percussionists from the School of Music playing congos, timbales, bongos and more.

Cody Faist, a civil engineering major from Galloway, and Anna Hurley, a city and regional planning major from Delaware, were the i-dotters this week.

Fans of the marching band have the opportunity to vote on social media for their favorite halftime formation after each new performance. Follow @TBDBITL on Twitter to vote on Monday mornings.
