Class Conflicts

The Minuteman Band meets every weekday from 4:40 to 6:25. Students who join the Minuteman Band are expected to attend all rehearsals. If you have a class that will regularly conflict with rehearsals, please write the DATE and the CLASS for the conflict and present it to the Director for approval as soon as possible. Depending on the frequency of the conflict, students may be assigned an alternate position to ensure that we have a full band at every rehearsal. This decision is at the discretion of the Director. Unforeseen or sporadic conflicts (ie. an exam or sickness) will be handled on a case by case basis.


First Aid Information

Support Personnel

Band Aides play a critical role in the UMMB. The band aides work with our professional staff and administrative staff on a lot of behind the scenes work with the band. Band-Aides do not march in the UMMB, but play a critical role on support staff. They are members of the Administrative Staff, receive credit for the course, and attend all marching band performances. We are always looking for more band aides.

**If you have selected "Band Aide", please skip "Uniform Information"**



Uniform Information

Please enter in your uniform information here, which includes colorguard members. Please be very accurate when indicating sizes. Accuracy is crucial if you are to receive a uniform that fits properly.

If you would like to order additional P&Cs or gloves, please specify below.

Please Note: Band Aides are also required to have P&Cs. If you have selected "Band Aide" and do not already have P&Cs (or would like more) please indicate your shirt size.

Pricing for new uniform components are as follows:

Maroon P&C $15, Gloves $3, White P&C $5; Only cash and checks payable to UMMB are acceptable forms of payment.


Equipment Information

Fill out this section if you need to request an instrument. The band will provide all sousaphones, baritones, mellophones, and percussion instruments. Additional instruments are available but limited; rental fees may be required. You will be responsible for the general maintenance of any instrument which you sign-out. Please bring all necessary accessories to band camp (reeds, mouthpiece, valve oil, lyres, neckstraps, ect.). The band does not supply these items.

Locker Agreement

By agreeing to have a locker, you are agreeing that the Marching Band, and the University of Massachusetts is not responsible for anything that goes missing. This includes (but is not limited to): instrument/instrument pieces, music, and or personal items. Theft of items will be dealt with the University of Massachusetts Police Department, not Marching Band Student Staff or Professional Staff.

Failure to lock your locker, with the lock provided by the Marching Band, releases the Marching Band from any liability of what happens to the content of the locker. Sharing lockers shares responsibility of the contents of the locker.

Do not leave anything of value in your locker. At no point should any alcohol or controlled substances be stored in Marching Band lockers. If any illegal substances are found in your locker, you will lose your locker privileges, and the matter will be handed to University Police. In short: only store band related things in your locker.

At the end of each semester, lockers will be checked for locks, if a lock is missing you are responsible to pay the Marching Band to replace it.
