Huskie Marching Band

What started with 14 members in 1899 has blossomed into a nearly 200-strong marching band playing to crowds of 30,000 at Huskie Stadium. The Huskie Marching Band (HMB) has earned the title "Pride of the Midwest" for its commitment to keeping the festive and fun vibe going whether on the football field at half-time, at parades, or any number of university-sponsored events. The Huskie Marching Band showcases their music, dance and drill skills with familiar songs everyone can enjoy!
