What makes MIT a special place is that the student body, like the MIT marching band members, “don’t take themselves too seriously”. At other schools, people could not tolerate a marching band that wore capes and did beach-themed halftime shows. We are part of a culture that embraces things that are clever, eccentric, and entertaining. Whether we actively take part in a group like the marching band, or go hacking, or drop things from high places just for fun, we know that here those things will be appreciated, or at least tolerated. The focus of the band is on having fun and enjoying our performances. Our membership includes people who were All-State musicians in high school as well as people who haven't picked up their instrument for years before joining us; we have people with drum corps marching experience and people who've never marched before in their lives, but thought it would be fun to try. So whatever you think your level of ability and experience is, you'll fit right in in the MIT Marching Band.

And if it's time commitment you're worried about, don't be - we understand that MIT can be a lot of work, so we're flexible. There are auditions, but they are pretty informal; everyone in the MIT Community is welcome to join at any time! Also, we have lots of instruments we could loan you if you don't have your own. We may not all be sports fans, but I believe we could all use a break from psetting to do something we will never be able to do again: Be crazy college sports fans. We can all learn a lesson from the MIT marching band, and get out there and show our MIT pride while having fun doing it.

The MIT Marching Band is composed of students from a wide variety of backgrounds who enjoy having fun and performing music. We perform regularly at MIT home football games, basketball games, and lacrosse games. We have also appeared recently at rugby, water polo, volleyball, quidditch, baseball, and field hockey games. We have even performed a "Marching Band on Ice" show between periods of an ice hockey game!We're a small little band, ranging from about 8 to 20 people, but we do our best with who we've got!

In addition to athletic events, we have performed at civic events such as the annual Cambridge Science Festival, the Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade, the Allston-Brighton Parade, and at LSC (MIT's provider of $2 on-campus movies--well, now $2.50 -- actually, it's $3--check that, $4). We also play Christmas carols on our annual Christmas tour through Boston, make mischief around MIT on Halloween night (including trick-or-treating at President Susan Hockfield's house), and sell romantic Band-O-Grams on Valentine's Day (because nothing says "I love you!" like a marching band!).
