Kansas State Bands

Alumni Band

Our mission as an Alumni Band chapter is to "Provide Kansas State University Marching Band Alumni an arena to continue their band participation and to support the Kansas State University Marching Band program." 

Reconnecting with Alumni
Every two years we have a Reunion where we meet with the KSU Marching Band and play with them on the field as time/commitment permits. We take this opportunity to also play in the parking lot gathering donations to help pay for the yearly Scholarship that is given to a current KSU Marching Band member.
