Alumni Band Homecoming Reunion

Join the Alumni Band “Marching 200 for 200” at the 2019 Bicentennial Homecoming Reunion! We’re planning to march 200 alumni in celebration of UC’s Bicentennial. Will you be one of them? Reconnect with friends, relive your glory years, and join the UCBAA for events of your choice.

We have many different ways to get involved—our reunion, parade, and tailgate are just some of your choices. Pick options that work with your ideal day. We recommend marching at halftime!

Anyone marching in the Homecoming Parade, performing pregame at Sigma Sigma Commons, or performing at halftime is expected to attend the rehearsals: Friday, Nov. 8 in the afternoon at the Rockwern Band Center and Saturday, Nov. 9 in the morning prior to the parade. Times TBA; Saturday morning rehearsal is typically 6 hours prior to kickoff, before parade lineup.

Game time may not be announced until 6-12 days prior to the date of the game.

Please make sure to provide your instrument info in the below registration. UCBAA has instruments available to borrow. If additional instruments are needed that exceed our inventory, Buddy Rogers Music has graciously offered to allow our members a short term rental option for free, with a suggested donation of $20 or more to the Boldly Bearcat Bands Instrument Fund in lieu of a rental fee. We may also borrow instruments from local schools if needed. The Alumni Board will assign instruments, and will notify you if any additional information is needed.
