Our Mission

To support the University of Miami "Band of the Hour,” with the help of alumni and friends, through advancement, service, and a commitment to the traditions of the University of Miami.

Association History

Since 1993, the Band of the Hour Association has been drumming up support for the "Band of the Hour." Previously known as the Band of the Hour Club, the Band of the Hour Association has developed numerous fundraisers. 

The club initiated the publication of a newsletter to keep friends and alumni up to date with the happenings of the Band of the Hour.

As the association grew into the new millennium, it changed its name from the "Band of the Hour Club" to the "Band of the Hour Association of Alumni and Friends", Inc. 

The Band of the Hour Association strives to keep its traditions alive though the traditions of the University of Miami and the "Band of 

the Hour" 

The marching band at the University of Miami was founded in 1933 and the "Band of the Hour" name was coined in the 1950's.  Curious about the history of the "Band of the Hour?" Click Here
