Aggie Band

The Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band is the official marching band of Texas A&M. Also known as the Noble Men of Kyle or just the Aggie Band, the band is the largest military marching band in the United States. All members of the band are members of the Corps of Cadets.

The nationally acclaimed band, which was formed in 1894, is known for its military precision and style. In fact, some of the band’s maneuvers — such as the famous Block T — are so complex that a computer says they can’t be done because they require two people to be in the same place at the same time.

It’s often said that the Aggie Band has never lost a halftime, so when the band steps off on the heavy beat of the “Aggie War Hymn” during halftime, Aggies respond with a resounding “Whoop!” The band performs at all university home football games, some away games, and other functions throughout the year. The band has also participated in inaugural parades for many U.S. presidents and Texas governors, as well as numerous other special events, making it one of the most traveled collegiate bands in the country.

The FIRST time I saw the Aggie Band live at a home football game, I was speechless. This was after I had been a member of the band from 1971-1975.
