Titan Thunder brings together elements of classic rock, country music and hard blues into one unforgettable sound. Fronted by Mike McCoy’s distinctive vocals and boasting an outstanding rhythm section of John Sutton, Paul Leimbach and Matt Cockcroft as rhythm section members; Titan Thunder has been providing top-quality entertainment across Wisconsin and beyond for more than 10 years now.

In 2022, UW Oshkosh began a new tradition: the Titan Thunder Marching Band brought energy and excitement to game days at Titan Stadium as well as other campus and community events. Recently, however, this tradition was joined by another band: Bolt Band; designed specifically to add that same extra layer of excitement at basketball matches at Kolf Sports Center during basketball season.

Both bands at UW Oshkosh are open to students from each campus as well as outsiders who can be accepted as students. Marching band offers students an incredible opportunity to forge friendships, establish new traditions at the university and develop valuable support systems during college career progression. Marching band can provide opportunities to play piccolo, clarinet or alto/tenor saxophones as well as trumpet, mellophone trombone sousaphone and drums; even though it requires hard work it’s definitely rewarding!

Future missions to Saturn’s frosty moon Titan may search for lightning in an unconventional manner – by listening out for its thunder. Listening for thunder may provide clues as to Titan’s environment, although its atmosphere differs considerably from Earth. On Titan, nitrogen dominates, distorting sound waves so much that detection may be difficult.

Researchers from Acoustical Society of America and MIT are creating instruments to measure how thunder sounds on Titan, the only planet known in our solar system with a substantial atmosphere. These instruments will measure thundercloud sizes and contents to assess nitrogen concentration; additionally they’ll record frequency variations according to atmospheric conditions.

These studies are part of a larger project to understand how thunder sounds on Titan and create an accurate soundscape of its moon, providing scientific documentaries, planetarium shows and science fiction movies with the tools needed to accurately recreate various planetary environments.

On Friday night, the Titans will face off against the Grizzlies in what promises to be an exciting Western Conference showdown between two young teams with many similarities despite what their front offices may say. Both squads feature young stars like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Ja Morant who have established themselves as playoff contenders while developing into All-NBA caliber guards.

Both teams will attempt to advance to the second round for the first time ever in franchise history. The Grizzlies’ run in this year’s playoffs has been especially impressive; their defense ranks second overall in scoring defense. Meanwhile, Titans have struggled at times scoring points but remain hopeful for a place in the semifinals thanks to their strong defense.
