The Badger Band is preparing to celebrate the 1970s during its annual Varsity Band Concert on April 19-21.
This year, the Varsity Band invited special guest Tom Wopat, star of Broadway and the hit show "Dukes of Hazzard," to join the celebration.
Wopat was first noticed by the public as the freewheeling Luke Duke in "The Dukes of Hazzard" TV series in the late 1970s.
From there, Wopat went on to perform in the Tony Award-winning "City of Angels" and "Guys and Dolls." Wopat also received a Tony nomination for creating the role of Frank Butler in the Broadway revival of "Annie Get Your Gun," opposite Bernadette Peters.
This year, Wopat will star in ABC's first movie musical "Elixir" alongside Jane Seymour, Chelsea Kane and Sara Paxton.
The concert, coordinated by longtime band leader Mike Leckrone, promises entertainment and fanfare with pyrotechnics, aerial stunts and multi-media displays.
