THE ROCKET MARCHING BAND

 

About the Band

The University of Toledo Rocket Marching Band is one of the largest and most visible student groups on campus! With 250 musicians, dancers, twirlers, and color guard, the RMB is a positive source of pride and school spirit for you as well as the entire UT community.  It's a GREAT time to get involved!  Remember that The RMB:

  • Is open to ALL UT students, regardless of major.  Engineering, Pharmacy, and Nursing students represent a large number of The RMB's ranks.
  • Is a class, which provides a 1-hr. elective credit that will count toward ANY degree.
  • Performs in the BEST venue in the MAC.  The Glass Bowl seats 26,000 and hosts some of the most exciting college football in the country!

If you have ANY questions about participation in the RMB, please contact the UT Bands Office at 419-530-2217 or contact the director at Andrew.Rhodes@utoledo.edu.
