TBD — Game and Performance at Memorial Stadium
When not performing, the Alumni Band will sit on the sidelines on the East side of the field. We will work with the Band and Athletic departments to be able to play a couple of times during the game, but please be aware that this may not be possible. Each game is scripted as to what is played on Husker Vision and when the band can play. Because of limited seating, only performing alumni will be able to sit in the chairs on the sidelines.
Post Game on Tom Osborne Field
Following the game, the alumni band will line up on the field to march back to WMB following the CMB’s post game performance. Alumni flagline will line up behind the current UNL flagline to perform with them for the CMB post game performance.
