Shortly after the University of Southern California was founded in 1880, a group of musicians first came together to form what would become the Trojan Marching Band (TMB). Now the largest spirit organization on campus, the band has developed into one of the most exciting marching bands in the country and was ranked the best in college football by USA Today.

Featuring over 300 passionate students from nearly every major, the TMB is a prominent representative of the university with over 300 engagements each year. The band has not missed a USC football game, at home or on the road, since 1987. As “Hollywood’s Band,” the TMB has appeared in films including The Naked Gun and Forrest Gump, television series such as Carpool Karaoke and The Tonight Show, and both the Grammys and the Oscars. The band has also performed at the Olympics, Super Bowls, and in 19 countries.
