COLUMBUS, OHIO – Blue Jackets fans attending the Tuesday, Oct. 25 game vs. the Detroit Red Wings will be treated to a special musical performance by the band, Locksley, whose hit single, “The Whip,” is the team’s official goal celebration song. The band will perform live throughout the night from the Nationwide Fan Lounge located above section 117 in the lower level.

The four-man band that describes its musical style as “doo-wop punk” is currently on tour in support of its new album, the eponymous Locksley, released on the band’s own Feature Records label.

“We’re very excited to welcome Locksley and give our fans this unique opportunity to enjoy a live rendition of the team’s goal song,” said Derek Dawley, Columbus Blue Jackets Director of Game Operations and Event Presentation. “‘The Whip’ is a catchy song that lends itself to great fan participation and we look forward to adding the energy of Locksley’s live performance to our in-arena experience on Tuesday.”
