Argo Athletic Band


The Argo Athletic Band is the premier performing ensemble at athletic events across campus. The Argo Athletic Band performs at all home football games as well as at select University functions. The Argo Athletic Band is open to all UWF students with a musical background and is comprised of both music and non-music majors. Under the direction of the Department of Music faculty, students will be a valued part of the fabric of campus life at UWF. Argo Athletic Band members will get to interact and network with students of all backgrounds, all while performing music that is exciting and entertaining.

How to Get Involved

In its first season, the newly formed Argo Athletic Band will perform at all home football and basketball games. We are looking for Brass, Woodwind, and Percussion students to participate in the Band for the 2018-19 season.

The University already has an exceptional pep band that performs at all home basketball games. That tradition will continue and expand as part of the UWF Athletic Band program. Students will receive a service award of at least $250 per season.

The Department of Music and UWF Athletics are reaching out to recently graduated seniors as well as band alumni that may already be attending UWF who might be interested in playing. We are fortunate to have an incredibly strong band tradition in the public schools in the northwest Florida area and are hoping to draw upon this resource. Interested students should fill out the Interest FormFor more information, email Laura Noah, director of percusion or Josh Bledsoe, director of winds and brass.
