General Information

Any senior who is considering attending Campbellsvlle University and becoming a member of the TMB should fill out a TMB Application using the online form located from the list on the left.  Once you have completed the application, if you have any additional questions please contact one of the directors.

Performance Grants:

Members of the Tiger Marching Band receive a band performance grant for their participation in the band.  You do not have to be a music major or minor to receive this grant.  You do not have to audition for this grant.  Members receive $2,000 per year for being in the marching band in the fall and the concert/pep band in the spring.

Rehearsal Schedule:

In the fall semester, the TMB rehearses M, T, Th and F from 4:00- 5:30pm. Marching band members cannot take another class that will conflict with these rehearsal times.  Students sign up for MUE 385 Marching Band for one hour credit.  You may register for 0 (zero) credit (MUE 185) if you already have 18 hours in your schedule.

Performances:

The TMB performs at all home football games and at selected high school competitions throughout the season.  All performances of the TMB are mandatory for all members.   Exhibition dates will be determined when the high school competition schedule becomes finalized.

Expenses: 

There are no fees or expenses charged to students for band camp.  The University covers all travel expenses for out-of-town performances including charter buses, meals and overnight housing (should the need occur).  There are no equipment or uniform fees for band membership.
