A Tradition oF

The University of Illinois Bands has a long lasting tradition of excellence starting back in 1868. The Fighting Illini Athletic Bands are part of the rich history and legacy of the Illinois Bands and perform at all Illinois home basketball games for both men’s and women’s teams as well as women’s volleyball. Each fall and spring, the Fighting Illini Athletic Bands often play at other Illinois sporting events such as wrestling, men’s and women’s gymnastics, tennis, and soccer.  The bands are divided into Men’s Basketball Band, Women’s Basketball Band, Volleyball Band, and several mini bands to service the other olympic sports.  Members with the highest rankings in performance and service are selected to play post-season tournament games.
