Upcoming Events

UMass vs. Buffalo and the Merry Maple Parade

On Friday November 28th, the 2014 UMMB season will come to an end as the UMass Minutemen play the Buffalo Bulls. Kick-off is at 1PM at McGuirk Stadium but be sure to come early as we acknowledge both the football team seniors and the marching band seniors. It has been such a great season and we cannot wait to perform our best show yet. We invite all attendees to stay after post-game for the special Senior Show. The Senior Show is written and directed by our 2014 seniors and combines songs and elements from our show music from the past four years.

Band Day 2014!

On Saturday October 18th, over 3,500 high schoolers and performers joined the UMMB at halftime in celebration for the 30th annual UMass Band Day. The day started early as 9AM, when bands and groups arrived and were greeted into Gillette Stadium by members of the UMMB proudly shouting the signature line, "WELCOME TO BAND DAY!"


UMMB at the NEPR Opening Ceremony!

On September 7th, 2014, The University of Massachusetts Minuteman Marching Band was invited to participate in the opening ceremony for the new New England Public Radio facility on Main Street in Springfield, MA. It was a truly exciting event and we were honoured to play a part in it.


Welcome to Band Camp!

This year, the University of Massachusetts Minuteman Marching Band will welcome approximately 125 new members. They will step off on August 23rd, one of the university’s biggest days of band camp. The marching band is composed of students who have marched throughout their high school career, and also students who have never taken a single roll-step. No matter what their history, all rookie members go through a day-and-a-half of review, instructed by the marching band’s four drum majors and student field staff.
