Kansas State Bands


Municipal BandKKY TBS
Manhattan, Kansas has had a tax-supported Municipal Band since 1920 when the city adopted a tax levy for that purpose. Over the years the band's membership has come from all conceivable walks of life, including students, staff, and faculty from Kansas State University, Manhattan Christian College and surrounding public schools, as well as military and civilian personnel from nearby Fort Riley, representatives of the community's diverse private sector, clergy, and retirees.At Kansas State University, the Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma chapters function mostly as one joint entity. While each maintains their separate organization, we have found that together, we can provide more support and service for the K-State bands.
