The Mission

The Band is a highly visible ambassador for the University throughout the country and an essential element of Cal Spirit.


Marching Band
- the 240 member fully-uniformed Marching Band is one of the few bands in the nation that still marches the traditional and demanding high-step form. Their entertaining and original home football half time shows highlight the musical creativity of the Band.


Straw Hat Band
- this subgroup of the Marching Band performs throughout the year at various University, alumni and community events, Cal's away football games, basketball and volleyball games and other sporting events.
