Alumni Marching Band
The CSU Alumni Band brings together members from throughout our 120-year history. Reconnect with friends, meet others who have shared in the CSU Marching Band experience, and dust off your chops as we play, spin, or just cheer together for our Ram team. We're excited for you to be part of this season — Go Rams!
“A Little Party Never Killed Nobody”
At the homecoming game, the Alumni Marching Band (including Golden Poms and color guard alumni) joined the CSU Marching Band on the field for this Fergie tune. What a fun party!
Alumni Marching Band History
CSU’s Alumni Marching Band began in 1993 when a group of enthusiastic alumni from the ’80s and ’90s rented a flatbed truck and participated in the Homecoming and Family Weekend parade. Over the years the group has grown in size, and annually joins the CSU Marching Band on the field – and in the stands – during the homecoming game.
In the early days of the Alumni Marching Band, the ensemble marched in the Homecoming and Family Weekend Parade, winning many awards.
