Banded Story:

The BMB is a 330 member marching band made up of mostly non-music majors.  Our purpose is to entertain and to provide lifelong memories for our members.


The Blugold Marching Band is a 330 member collegiate marching band that grew from a 60 member marching band just 15 years ago.  In that time the BMB has become one of the largest and most active marching bands in the upper Midwest.  We perform exhibitions at many high school shows including several  BOA SuperRegionals (Indy in 2016 and 2014) & St Louis in 2012).  We also travel internationally every other year.  Recent trips include Spain & Italy (2016) Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand (2014), Italy, Greece, Turkey, & Israel (2012), Venice, Paris, & London (2010), and Rome & Athens (2008).
