The University of Wyoming "Western Thunder" Marching Band is comprised of students
involved in almost every academic major offered on campus. The band performs at all
home games and occasionally at away games, which have included the University of Texas,
the University of Nebraska, the University of New Mexico, the Air Force Academy, and
at Colorado State University. We also host an annual high school marching band invitational
in October in cooperation with the Casper Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps.
WTMB is open to all students on campus with no audition necessary unless you are involved
with the drumline. We march the following instruments: piccolo, Bb clarinet, alto
saxophone, tenor saxophone, trumpet, mellophone, trombone, baritone, sousaphone, auxiliary
(comprised of twirlers and color guard), and the drumline consisting of snare, quints,
multi-bass drums, and cymbals. Many of these instruments are available for rental
through our music department for the duration of the marching season.
The band would like to thank the McMurry family and all supporters of The Hat Club
for their continued support of the organization. Without their generous contributions,
we would not be able to function at the level we are at now. From the bottom of our
hearts, thank you!
