Brunch Buffet at the Kellogg Center                                   

The Alumni Band will again have an optional buffet brunch at the Kellogg Center, following the morning rehearsal. It will run from 12:00-2:00pm, and you may select as many tickets to this event as you would like - family members and friends are welcome to attend. The brunch is informal, and is a good opportunity to relax, visit with others, and talk with directors.

MSU Alumni Band

The MSU Alumni Band Association was formed by Ken Bloomquist (Director of Bands Emeritus) in 1970. Since then we have been meeting regularly in both the Fall and the Spring to provide an opportunity for band alumni - young and old - to join together in musical performances and commaraderie reflective of the wonderful spirit of MSU Bands.  We also take on a variety of projects - funding scholarships, raising money for band jackets for the Spartan Marching Band, playing holiday bands at hockey and basketball games, and raising funds/contributing to special events.
