Warm Up the Band: Help the UB Marching Band Purchase New Coats

The UB Marching Band, fondly known as "The Thunder of the East", is one of the largest, loudest and most exciting marching bands in the country. Whether these students are energizing the crowd at a UB Football game or taking their show on the road to support the community, the UB Marching Band continues to emulate the spirit of UB through their high-energy performances.

To allow our Marching Band to continue to share its UB pride throughout the colder Buffalo months, the band is seeking donations to purchase new winter coats.

The cost to purchase one winter coat for our band members is approximately $150.

Football and marching band season go well into November and December, and in order to carry on our tradition of excellence, we ask that you consider donating to our cause. Our top three donors will be featured guest conductors at a future UB Football game. 

Please help us spread the word and take advantage of this great opportunity to warm up the band.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Meet a few members of the UB Marching Band and how their involvement in marching band has shaped their UB experience:
