‘The 8-Bit Big Band’ Wins Grammy For Kirby Arrangement

The 64th Annual Grammy Awards took place in Las Vegas last night and it was a big one for Kirby fans (we honestly never thought we’d say such words).

The 8-Bit Big Band, which boasts 194K subscribers on YouTube, has won the ‘Best Arrangement, Instrumental, Or A Capella’ category for its beautiful take on ‘Meta Knight’s Revenge’ from Kirby Super Star.

Arranged by Charlie Rosen and Jake Silverman, the piece has amassed 230,967 views on YouTube at the time of writing, though we suspect this will increase dramatically in the wake of their Grammy win.

It’s well worth having a scan of the band’s other arrangements on YouTube, which includes the main themes for the likes of Chrono Trigger and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, along with a stunning jazz rendition of Dire Dire Docks from Super Mario 64.

In the meantime, you can check out Meta Knight’s Revenge via the embedded video below:

Let us know what you think of The 8-Bit Big Band’s huge Grammy win, and which other classic video game tracks you’d like to see them cover!
