Bearcat Marching Band: "The Musical Pride of Northwest"

Performing for more than 50,000 adoring fans annually, the Bearcat Marching Band is one of the most visible student organizations at Northwest and its membership includes students from nearly every major field of study within the University. Since the mid 1920's the university bands have presented thrilling, innovative, and exciting performances for the Four State Area (Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska). That pioneering tradition continues to this day with the 2013 Bearcat Marching Band. Performances include a wide variety of musical styles: Classic Rock, Swing/Jazz, Patriotic, and TV/Movie Themes. The Bearcat Marching Band, including the BMB Drumline, Northwest Flags, Bearcat Steppers, and Featured Twirlers, performs for all home football games, Homecoming Parade, Arrowhead Stadium (home of the Kansas City Chiefs) and in exhibition for numerous regional high school marching band festivals.
