Black Bear Marching Band

Welcome to the Pride, Spirit and Drive of the University of Maine Marching Band!  The marching band at the University of Maine performs pregame and halftime shows at all home football games, providing spirit and entertainment to UMaine fans.  We also participate in one or two high school exhibition shows during the fall to give high school students a chance to experience what we do.  We have members from all over the country, and from all different majors.  If you are interested in being part of the Pride, Spirit and Drive, just click on the link for the information form to the right and we will be in touch!
