Welcome to the Butler Athletic Bands
We invite you to become part of the "Spirit Center of the Butler
Campus," the Butler University Marching Band and Colorguard
(BUMB), and the Butler University Basketball Band (BUBB).
The BUMB is a
great way to make 120+ friends in a hurry and participation
fulfills your Physical Well Being PE requirement. You have to take
a gym class sometime, and band is definitely fun!
You receive a $100.00 tuition reduction just for joining.
Rehearsals are Monday and Wednesday from 5:15 to 6:45 p.m. and
Friday from 4:15 to 6:45 p.m. Our season ends six weeks
before finals, so time gets put back into your schedule just when
you need it most!
Percussionists and Colorguard members get to check in early, and
that's no small perk when you consider that typically 1,000+ new
freshmen all converge on our campus on Saturday and Sunday, August
24 and 25!
Drumline and Colorguard members come in Friday, Aug. 23 and
check into their residence halls anytime between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
The first rehearsal occurs at 5 p.m. that afternoon. See the
schedule found on "Forms and Resources."
We are looking for talented students on any wind or percussion
instrument, including guitar, mallet or electronic keyboards, or
flag/colorguard performers, or twirlers and dancers, and we want
you to be part of this exciting and fun group.
Register for band and colorguard/flagline (PWB 140-01)
during early registration. Remember band when you're
planning your schedule. It's easier to build fun into your academic
routine right from the beginning than to change your class schedule
