The Manhattan Municipal Band has been a feature of the Manhattan and K-State communities for more than 97 years and performs entertaining concerts comprised of jazz, standard, classical and patriotic tunes. The Municipal Band draws participation from K-State faculty and students across all academic disciplines as well as many local Manhattan citizens.

The band is sponsored by the city of Manhattan and the K-State music department, and is under the direction of Frank Tracz. Come out June 20 to be entertained and witness a Manhattan and K-State tradition with almost 100 years of history.
