The University of Mississippi Band has been giving outstanding performances in concert and in support of Ole Miss athletic events since it was organized in 1928. In addition to performing at all home football games and many away games, the marching band has attended numerous bowl games including the Sugar Bowl, the Gator Bowl, the Liberty Bowl, the Independence Bowl, the Peach Bowl, the Cotton Bowl, the Motor City Bowl in 1997, the Music City Bowl in 2000, the Independence Bowl in 1998, 1999 and 2002, and the Cotton Bowl in 2003, 2008 and 2009, and more recently the Compass Bowl in 2012, the Music City Bowl in 2013, the Peach Bowl in 2014, the Sugar Bowl in 2015 and 2021, and the Texas Bowl in 2022.
In addition to the Marching Band there are several “pep bands” formed out of “The Pride of the South”. These Pep bands perform for numerous functions such as pep rallies before each home game. Another extension of the Ole Miss Band is the Ole Miss Basketball band. The basketball band supports both the Rebel and Lady Rebel Basketball teams at all home games after football season, as well as traveling to the SEC and NCAA tournaments annually.
The Ole Miss Band is comprised of students from diverse courses of study such as Pre-Med, Criminal Justice, Engineering, Political Science, Journalism and countless others. We offer competitive scholarships for students of every major in the University, contingent upon funding.
If you are interested in participating in an outstanding college band, the Rebel Band has much to offer you.
