Marching 100 Alumni Band Association

Band Camp History

The Marching 100 Summer Band Camp has been in existence since 1990, when we had less than 100 members. The majority of those in attendance were from Burke HS (Charleston, SC), and William M. Raines HS (Jacksonville, FL). Burke got the attendance award, and have been getting that award every since!

The camp includes a variety of bands and ensembles, and will help you to become a more well-rounded musician. While the Marching Band is the crown jewel of the camp, there are also the 3 symphonic bands (Honor, Orange, and Green), two Jazz Bands, a Percussion Ensemble, Keyboard and Electronic Music, and an ensemble for every instrument.

The camp also includes drum majors, flags, majorettes, and dancing girls.

The camp students are taught by "Marching 100" members, and perform not only for their parents, but for all of the FAMU and Tallahassee residents at their symphonic concert, ensemble concert, parade, and the final marching exhibition of Bragg Memorial Stadium, home of the Mighty Rattlers! 

If you're interested in getting more information about the camp, feel free to send an email to the FAMU Music Dept. The Alumni Band Association will be giving away camp scholarships and sending information out to our distribution list. If you will fill out the Interested Musicians Form we will know who you are, and will be able to get information to you about the performances of the Marching 100. We have given multiple scholarships over the years, so if you want to be in that number, fill out the form!
