Biographical Sketch

Made up of twenty-five original members, Texas Tech's band made its first official appearance at the Tech vs. McMurry football game in 1925. The band got its first official uniform in 1926 and by 1955, had grown to include 135 members. The decade of the 1960s marked the Tech Band's appearances in several major bowl games from which the band received the nickname " The Goin' Band from Raiderland."

Texas Tech has offered music courses since 1925, but not until 1952 was a Bachelor of Music made a degree option. By the academic year 1954-1955, there were nine full-time staff members and 3 part-time. The band's increasing membership caused numerous moves for the department around campus until a new music building was constructed in 1951.
