Do you play a musical instrument, spin a baton, or have interest in color guard? If so, then I would like to take this opportunity to give you some information about the Athletic Bands at UNO - the Marching Mavericks and the Maverick Machine Pep Band. The athletic bands have a strong tradition of excellence, a rooted sense of community, and sincere love of performing.

The Marching Mavericks have been entrenched in university life and culture for close to 100 years. The group performs across the region at UNO athletic events, in exhibition at local and regional marching band competitions, and in celebrations, festivals, and concerts around the United States.
