Actor and KCK native Eric Stonestreet has shown his support for Kansas City over the years, participating in the Big Slick charity weekend and showing his love for his hometown teams.

So it came as no surprise that the Kansas State alumnus recently voiced his support for K-State’s marching band.

After the band received national attention for what some perceived as a vulgar halftime show, Stonestreet spoke out.

On his Instagram, Stonestreet posted several videos he took of the marching band, who surprised his parents for their 50th wedding anniversary last year.

On his Facebook page, Stonestreet posted another video, with this caption:

“Last year on a Saturday, I asked the K-State marching band to come to my parents house and surprise them for their 50th wedding anniversary. It was the bands day off and it was not a mandatory event. Frank (the band director) just asked for volunteers. This is who showed up. I will forever be grateful to these kids and staff.”
