The UMMB is going to the 2018 Rose Parade! During the half time of our final home football game it was officially announced that the band will be traveling to Pasadena, CA. We are all extremely excited and honored to be invited to this historic festival of flowers.
Yesterday the UMMB performed at the annual MICCA Marching Band Festival. It was a rousing success with hundreds of high school students watching our performance. The UMMB thanks all of our band parents for the always amazing Burger Burn and we would like to thank the legendary founder of MICCA Paul Alberta for conducting My Way with the band.
The UMMB is currently wearing uniforms that debuted when most of our musicians had yet to reach kindergarten. We've done our best to preserve and repair them, but it's time to say goodbye. To help our Uniform Fund and learn more, visit Uniform MinuteFund.
