Cardinal Marching Band

For over 70 years, the Cardinal Marching Band has proudly represented the University of Louisville as the most visible ensemble at the School of Music, performing live for over half a million spectators each year.  Creating vibrant game day traditions for Cardinal fans is at the core of the CMB, which performs at all UofL Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium home football games, select away games and all bowl games. The CMB has been the  “Official Band for the KY Derby” since 1936 and has received national recognition through features on ESPN, ABC World News Tonight, Oprah, Sports Illustrated, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and the NFL Network.  Additionally, the CMB has performed at 20 bowl games including the Citrus, Music City, Russell Athletic, Sugar, Orange, Liberty, Belk, Beef O’ Brady’s, Gator, GMAC, Humanitarian, Motor City, Fiesta, Pasadena and Sun Bowl.

Members of the CMB proudly represent some of the finest students at the University of Louisville and surrounding Kentuckiana Metroversity institutions. The CMB is an auditioned ensemble that performs a variety of music throughout the season as well as a new half-time show for every football game.

Your gift will be allocated directly to the Marching Band General Fund.
