Memories of the Auburn University Marching Band-1970s

Band Story from 1973

When the Auburn Alumni Band Board met on July 16, 2016, we all agreed that we love to reminisce about our time in the Auburn University Marching Band. Learning from the past and looking to the future, we hope that, in addition to important announcements and information, this website can become a place of camaraderie and mutual enjoyment as we share our memories with one another. While this has been happening for some time now in our Facebook group (please email auburnalumniband@gmail.com if you’d like to join our private Facebook group), we wanted to encourage members who might not use social media to share their photos and memories here on our website.

David McCollough (’74, ’75) recently submitted these wonderful memories of his time in the Auburn University Marching Band.
