The Auburn University Marching Band has built an international reputation for its precise, entertaining, and colorful performances on the field, unyielding and spirited support for its sports teams, and prideful ambassadorship for Auburn University. The marching band was named the 2004 recipient of the Sudler Intercollegiate Marching Band Trophy, the nation’s highest and most coveted award for college and university marching bands. With 380 members, the current marching band is the largest in university history. The band recently performed at the 2011 and 2014 BCS National Championship Games and the 2010, 2013, and 2017 Southeastern Conference Championship Game. Other recent appearances include the 2010 and 2015 Outback Bowl, the 2007 and 2012 Chick-fil-a Bowl, the 2017 Sugar Bowl, the 2018 Peach Bowl, and the 2008 St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland. The band was one of only six collegiate marching bands selected by ESPN to participate in its 2008 Battle of the Bands promotion.
Throughout its history, one of the primary goals of the Auburn University Marching Band has been to foster the Auburn Spirit. With more than thirty performances and exhibitions starting early in the fall and extending through the bowl season, the Auburn Band does exactly that.
