The U.S. Army All-American Band performs during halftime for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. The band program was founded in 2008 with just 97 members and has since grown to 125 performers: 1 drum major, 24 color guard members, and 100 marching musicians. All shows have featured patriotic themes and throughout the years, the program has become a milestone in the lives of so many young musicians! Due to the generosity of our sponsors, this all-star program is completely free from flights to San Antonio to apparel and meals during Bowl Week.
The 2018 band will mark 11 years of marching music excellence for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. The Bowl itself began in 2001. Alumni of the USAAAMB have gone on to be members of top drum and bugle corps, prestigious universities, professional careers and so much more. To date, 35 alumni have become U.S. Army soldiers. Many have joined other military branches. Great things come from this organization.
Students may audition during the spring of their junior year. All auditions are done online, so there is no travel cost associated with the audition. Notifications of acceptance are released in July and the performers are sent to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl one week before show day. Together, they put an entire show on the field with about 4 days of rehearsal time. The 2018 Bowl will be Saturday, January 6, 2018.
