Big Gigantic Rocks Coachella With Local Marching Band

Jamtronica duo Big Gigantic played the Coachella festival on Sunday and were joined by an unlikely set of guests - the 34-piece Shadow Hills High marching band from Indio, CA. The students joined Dom and Jeremy for renditions of "I Need A Dollar" and "Can't Hold Us" during the pair's set.

Big G.'s Dominic Lalli told The Desert Sun that he always wanted to bring out a marching band to guest with them at a performance as he was a member of a student group as a youngster. "Really, at the end of the day, what I hope is that it inspires the kids, and they realize that anything is possible, I was just like they were. … Hopefully it inspires those kids to take whatever they are doing to the next level," Lalli explained to The Desert Sun.

Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken went to Shadow Hills early on Sunday to rehearse the performance and plan to reprise the marching band guest spot at this weekend's second round of Coachella. Watch Big Gigantic's entire set from Sunday, including the marching band sit- in:
