The Drake University Marching Band provides students the opportunity to participate in the flash and fanfare of a high-quality marching program while being involved in the exciting atmosphere that is college football. This one hundred-member, corps style band performs in the historic Drake Stadium for all home football games as well a variety of other campus activities throughout the fall semester. The Marching Band, which is open to all interested students, enjoys campus-wide participation by students from numerous academic majors. Performances by the marching band feature fast-paced, high-energy, pop music including Billy Joel, Carlos Santana, Bill Chase, Stevie Wonder and Gloria Estefan/Miami Sound Machine.
Rehearsal schedule for the Marching Band will be announced during an informational meeting held the weekend before the start of the fall semester.
