Support the Band

For over 100 years, the Famous Maroon Band has been supporting Mississippi State University with outstanding music. Whether on the field for the STATE spellout, or on the concert stage playing a Sousa march, the band program at Mississippi State has always emphasized excellence in musical performance.

Private support for the Maroon Band has never been more important than it is right now because the costs of operating a large SEC band program increase significantly each year. The budget picture each year isn't always clear, so we must lean on our friends, alumni and supporters to ensure that we are able to continue operating at our present level.

Your gift to the band, no matter how big or small, is extremely important and will help the program maintain the standard of excellence built through the years by thousands of band members.
