Welcome to the official site of the Bronco Marching Band at Western Michigan University. Known as “The Sound of Western” the Bronco Marching Band is one of the nation’s premiere college marching bands. Feel free to peruse our site and contact us if you would like any further information.



The Bronco Marching Band consisting of over 290 members, under the direction of Dr. David W. Montgomery, is recognized for its excellence in musical performance, fast-paced drill movements, and high energy entertainment. Comprised of students from virtually every academic discipline at the University, the band continues to build upon its strong tradition of musical excellence and first class entertainment. In addition to the halftime shows for the Bronco football fans at home, the Bronco Marching Band supports our football team on select road trips, regularly performs in exhibition at area high schools, and presents its annual “Season in Review” concert at Miller Auditorium on the campus of WMU. Their performances are met with great acclaim.
