Why should you ADOPT-THE-BAND?

Whether it's a high-spirited halftime show at a football game in Jack Trice Stadium or a touch of "Hilton Magic" at a basketball game, the Cyclone Bands are providing entertainment and university pride to every spectator in the audience. With their superior showmanship, the Cyclone Bands are regarded as some of the finest collegiate bands in the country.

However, each year the band operates on a very limited budget. The annual Adopt-the-Band campaign is your chance to show your pride in the Cyclone Bands and the outstanding men and women who represent the university with such talent and dedication.

Last year's donor support helped to provide the band with new uniforms.

This year's goal for the Adopt-the-Band program is to purchase twelve new sousaphones. These new instruments would help to better accomodate the growing band program, as well as replace some of the old equipment currently in use.
