Become a Part of the Tradition

The Duke University Marching Band is proud to represent the university both on campus and around the country as a spirited supporter of Duke Athletics. Comprised almost entirely of non-music majors, our members have a great time putting on shows and getting the crowd going by playing University favorites!
