Sacramento State Marching Band
#StingersUp for the SSMB!
From football games at Sacramento State each fall to the greater community all year round, the Sac State Marching Band is the largest and loudest spirit organization on the Sacramento State campus. The Marching Band rehearses during the fall semester, MWF 3:30-5:50 p.m. Sac State Students enroll in MUSC 142M for credit. All students in good academic standing receive priority registration.
All members participating in the Marching Band must be vaccinated against Covid-19. Students should fill out the Vaccine Verification form, linked below. Non-Sac State students will need to complete the Volunteer process (outlined on the Community Info page) before receiving a Sac State ID# to complete this.
All musicians can join the marching band, regardless of the marching experience! Auditions for the color guard, battery, and front ensemble are typically held each August before the start of band camp. There are no auditions for the winds and brass, though part placement auditions may be held. The Marching Band follows the strict Code of Conduct rules adopted by the University.
While most of our members are students at Sac State, we also draw members from other local colleges. If you are not a Sac State student, you need to be approved as a University Volunteer prior to joining us. This process is outlined on the School of Music Community Info page.
Enrollment/participation in University ensembles requires paying the School of Music's $40 Service Fee, which helps pay for supplies used by various areas in the department. It also entitles you to:
- borrow an instrument for the semester (if needed)
- the usage of a locker in Capistrano Hall
- use of the practice rooms (for Sac State students only - key checkout required)
- free admission to most School of Music events (see the FREE Tickets section of the Student Resources Page for info)
You may also be required to pay a Marching Band Club membership fee.
- Sac State Students $40
- Non-Sac State Students $50
