How to Join
Become A Part of Our History
The University of Texas Longhorn Alumni Band began in 1964 with 67 members. Now, LHAB consists of over 3,600 members spanning seven countries!
The Alumni Band meets annually for "Band Day" - our yearly designated home game - for a weekend of comraderie, playing, and the ever-popular Business Meeting. The addition of our Friday Family Fun Fest also provides new opportunites for families to interact and catch-up. On game day, LHAB and LHB each perform half-time shows of their own, and then combime (often numbering over 1,000 in total) to perform for the ever-appreciative DKR-Memorial audience.
Did you receive a scholarship from the LHAB?
Though the fun of Band Day weekend is the event to look forward to each year, the primary purpose of the LHAB is to collect donations for the Longhorn Alumni Band Charitable Fund, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation that oversees the management of donations and the distribution of scholarships to deserving Longhorn Band members. Membership dues, scholarship-specific gifts, and donations for playing gigs all contribute to this fund.
Join us throughout the year!
Area chapters of the Alumni Band are invited throughout the year to perform for various functions, such as weddings, parties, parades, etc., in return for donations to the Scholarship Fund. These occasions provide additional opportunities for socializing for the members who participate.
