     The Marquette Band has been an important, fun, exciting, and fulfilling part of my college life here at MU. The friends I have made and experiences I've had while in band have made me a better, complete person. Without the band, I don't know what I would be doing at MU. The band is full of great people who will "become professionals in their own fields" as Dr. C. likes to put it. I feel that even though we come from different walks of life and have different majors, we all have one thing in common… a love to play in the Marquette Band. For those 6 hours a week, we come together to play as a group and feel a sense of accomplishment after playing a great concert. I invite everyone to come to our concerts, listen to our jazz bands, and cheer with us as we play at the basketball games. Have a great year everyone, and see you in band!

Instrument: Trombone

Sad fact of my life: Right now, I'm watching Becoming the Red Hot Chili Peppers on MTV. I don't even really like them. What the hell?? Allright, obviously I looooove music. If you ask me what kind of groups I'm in you'll get an endless list: I'm in 'em all! Any chance I get to play my precious tromboner, I take it. I love to listen to all kinds of music, except country pretty much. My eclectic tastes are as follows: favorite bands = Slipknot, Less Than Jake, Tool, Catch 22. I know; I'm messed up. My best friend is Jack Daniel's and when he's not around, I turn to my pal Mad Dog 20/20. If you found out any more about me, you'd be bored and sleeping (if you're not already.) GO MARQUETTE BASKETBALL!!!!!

Steve Brown

     Hello Band, I'm Steve Brown the band treasurer. This year is looking good for the whole band and I hope to help make it a wonderful experience for everyone.
     I'm a Senior majoring in Economics and Human Resources, and I plan to stay at Marquette next school year in order to finish a Masters of Science in Applied Economics. I play Euphonium along with Spence, and I work too much.
     I am currently working at Potawatomi Bingo and Casino as a Valet. By the way, anyone interested in applying talk to me, you can make as much as $10 or more per hour.
     I love Highlanders and I won the best costume contest last year clad in Papa Smurf attire. If anyone has any questions about band, the band account balance, or anything else please talk to me.

By the way,
My address is 915 N. 15th St. #308 (the Kensington)
and my phone number is 934-8604.

See you in Band

     A little about me, well, if you want to know I'm quite a character that doesn't like the flow of things sometimes. I'm a Taurus, like long walks by the beach, moonlight dinners, Greco-Roman wrestling (with a nice lemony scented oil), and an overall nice guy. I absolutely LOVE cars. I can talk all day about them, but I'll save you the boredom for now. Onto other interests of mine. The Cubs, well, they're so awesome I don't know where to start. The Bears will win it this year, so what if they don't have a good quarterback and have only won 19 games within the last 4 seasons? The Bulls will win it with the powerhouses of Charles Oakley, Eddie Robinson, and Greg Anthony. I like music, but not that country stuff. My favorite genres are rock/metal and disco (it will NEVER die). My favorite day of the week is funkadelic Friday. If you want to find out, come and find me on a Friday and I'll show you what I mean. Love to travel, especially for free. I like yelling, so if you are at any games and you hear someone from the band, it's probably me. A few of my favorite expressions are doggoneit, doopa, chachmo, and gzoman. My work consists of driving L.I.M.O.s, which is very interesting sometimes, like this one time, oh never mind, I ran out of time. If you want to learn more, click on the email address and ask.

Jess Chapman:
     Hello all you bando lovers out there! I am pleased to tell you about myself. First of all, I am a Junior in nursing, enjoy helping people and consider myself a "people person". The biggest kick out of life that I get is making people around me smile :) I also am the one of the social coordinators of the mu band which allows me to help others have fun in this excellent organization. Furthermore, I would also like to say that I AM THE BIGGEST BAND DORK THERE IS AND EVER WILL BE AND I AM PROUD OF IT! I play clarinet and tenor sax, which certify me as being band material. Also, I get a crazy thrill out of dressing in an over-sized blue and gold rugby and acting like a nut in order to cheer on MU Basketball! Although bandos are down right goofy at times, I love them and wouldn't consider myself and my "marquette experience" complete without them. If you are not yet a crazy bando member or would like some additional information about the mu band please feel free to contact me.
