“All-American” Marching Band

Organized in 1886, a year before Purdue’s first football team, the Purdue “All-American” Marching Band (AAMB) enjoys over 125 years of tradition on the West Lafayette campus. Each fall, the band serves up some of the university’s favorite traditions – the Block “P” formation and the Big Bass Drum – along with lively half-time shows that blend the latest trends in music with nostalgic looks at past eras.

Directed by Jay S. Gephart, the 383-member band stands as the largest in the Big 10 and one of the largest in the nation.
