From the Video Vault: The Down the Drive Mixtape

John Denver, the Isley Brothers, Scott Walker and the UC Bearcat Band, among others.

Over the past two years, I have posted a number of music videos as a part of my "From the Video Vault" column.

Here are five of my non-UC Bearcat Band favorites:

1. Scott Walker serenading the Bearcat faithful with the "Lights of Cincinnati."

2. UC graduate Tennessee Ernie Ford's "Sixteen Tons."

3. Jazzer Al Hirt, another UC man, showing off his "Sugar Lips."

4. Cincinnati's own Isley Brothers with the iconic "Footsteps in the Dark."

5. John Denver live at the Wise Owl Coffeehouse at the University of Cincinnati in May 1969.

More Importantly, though, the Video Vault has been a showcase for the talents of the UC Bearcat Band.

The UC Bearcat Band has made several appearances in the Video Vault. They will continue to do so during the 2016 football season.
