Join us the weekend of April 14-15 as we celebrate the legacies (both old and new) of the Minuteman Band!

So what’s in store?

On Saturday, April 14th, join us for the 2nd Annual Big Band Bash. It’ll feature a UMMB-banquet-style format complete with cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. There will also be silent — AND LIVE — auctions of amazing prizes to raise money for the band, and it’s open to all!

The inaugural Bash in 2017 featured amazing auctioneer and band alum Matt Dunphy, who helped gavel us to $5,000 for new band uniforms!
