The Alums play Texas-type jazz- big and rich, with all the subtlety of a brick through a plate glass window. And make no mistake: this is NOT a college band organization trying to play a few jazz tunes as a novelty. This is a genuine jazz band in every sense of the word. Membership is open to all former members of the SMU Mustang Band.
The Alumni Band features some of the greatest tunes of jazz music, whether strolling down the boulevard or neatly parked on the concert stage. Yes, the tradition of Mustang Jazz - swinging out in that solid, jaunty style - is always exciting and refreshing. Look and listen for the SMU Alumni Band on the boulevard before all home games. We guarantee you will not be disappointed.
The Alumni Band not only performs for football fans on the boulevard, but provides support for basketball fans at home games during the winter break, when the current Mustang Band members are home for the holidays. This is something that no other university can claim access.
Rehearsals are Thursday evenings at 7:15pm in the Mustang Band hall.
