The history of the Carolina Band now spans a century, through times of prosperity and growth, and through world war and unprecedented challenge. The students, directors, staff, and supporters of the band have changed, but its spirit has endured. On Saturdays in the fall, in Columbia and across the nation, the sights and sounds of the Carolina Band have energized fans and propelled teams to victory. Day or night, sunshine, rain, or snow, whether winning or losing, the Carolina Band has been a mainstay of Gamecock pride.
We hope this chronology will serve as a reminder of your own time in the band and pique your curiosity about our heritage. If you have a correction or addition to submit, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
