Congratulations to the Class of 2021!

If you are an incoming freshman or a current student who is interested in becoming a member of Duke Athletic Bands we want to hear from you.

Our band is growing and we would love for you to be a part of the excitement. Incoming freshmen are invited to request information. You can also post questions on the band's Fall 2017 Interest Group and receive answers from current band members!

The band is active year round, but our schedule is very manageable and our number one rule is that we always have fun with anything we are doing from practice to performance to traveling to the Final Four!
