The annual Grammy’s took place last night, and as usual, it was a star studded occasion. Out of the many winners last night was a New York City orchestra who covered Meta Knight’s Revenge from the 1996 Super Nintendo game, Kirby Superstar, and won the Grammy award for Best Arrangement, Instrumental or A Cappella. As VCG reports, the 8-Bit Big Band is a 30-65 member Jazz/Pops orchestra based in New York City, which covers musical themes from various video games. Even Kirby creator Masahiro Sakurai was both stoked and surprised writing the following tweet : “How is that possible? I’m surprised.” Congratulations to 8-Bit Big Band and the rest of the winners at the event.
