ABOUT THIS BOOK

From the small Cadet Band that supported the school’s military department to the “best in sight and sound” Marching Razorbacks that are a staple of the university’s athletic program, the band has provided the soundtrack to the University of Arkansas.


The rich history of the Razorback Band has spanned almost the entire existence of the University of Arkansas. This book documents the distinguished 130-year history of the band from its humble beginnings in 1874 as an adjunct to the military cadet squad to the major college organization that it is today. Both as a supporting player of the military and ROTC programs and of the athletic department, the Razorback Band has provided the spirited musical excitement required through the years, as well as performing concerts on its own for an appreciative student body and community audience with the Concert Band and Wind Ensemble. Add to that the parallel story of the evolution of an exciting basketball and volleyball spirit band—the Hogwild Band—and you have in this lavishly illustrated book the first-ever history of the music makers of the University of Arkansas.
