FIGHTING ILLINI ATHLETIC BANDS


MUS 274 | FIGHTING ILLINI ATHLETIC BANDS

The University of Illinois Bands has a long lasting tradition of excellence and the Fighting Illini Athletic Bands are no exception. The Fighting Illini Athletic Bands perform at all Illinois home basketball games for both men’s and women’s teams as well as women’s volleyball.  Each fall and spring, the Fighting Illini Athletic Bands will also play at many other Illinois sporting events such as wrestling, men’s and women’s gymnastics, tennis, and soccer.  The bands are divided into one Men’s Basketball Band, one Women’s Basketball Band, Volleyball Band, and then several mini bands to service the other olympic sports.  Members with the highest rankings in performance and service are selected to play post-season tournament appearances.
