The University of Connecticut Marching Band (UCMB), nicknamed "The Pride of Connecticut," was formed in 1904 as an all-male ROTC band. It is currently under the direction of Dr. David Mills and assisted by Marvin McNeill and Jessica Von Villas. There are about 300 members in the band. It performs pre-game, halftime, and post-game shows at every home football game at Rentschler Field and travels to at least one away game each season. The band makes other appearances on and off-campus throughout the year, including the Hartford Veteran's Day and Homecoming Parades as well as the USSBA and MAC Championships at John F. Kennedy Stadium (Bridgeport).
