(we are fortunate to have many Band Friends - here and there - above - Gem Alumnus, Jason Reinhardt with Demian Austin, Principal Trombonist in the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, as Demian was in town to visit Band Friend, his mother - Sharon Austin)

"Friends" of our Tiger Bands
"OC" [On-Campus] & "GC" [Geographically-Challenged]

Since the inception of the modern era of our Tiger Bands in the Fall of 1993, we have been diligently collecting, amassing, courting, nurturing and massaging a wide variety of both "OC" [On-Campus] & "GC" [Geographically-Challenged] "Friends" of our Tiger Bands. Our efforts have proven to be of the greatest import, and today we are most fortunate to have a veritable plethora of "Friends" of our Tiger Bands both on-campus and throughout the United States. These "Friends" serve our Tiger Bands in many important ways, they help with recruiting, the provide non-stop moral support and encouragement and have proven invaluable in the area of funding. Our efforts must never cease to increase the number and level of "Friends" of our Tiger Bands, and in all things we must work tirelessly to ensure that we are deserving of the support which these fine folk continually provide for us.

Band Friends ... 2014-2015

There follows a listing of donors whose generosity has enabled us to sustain our veritable plethora of performances, events and activities. They represent members of; The Band Friends, The Grrr… Club, The Director’s Circle ~ major supporters of our Grrr... Magic Sunflower Seed Project, donors to the Kim Summers Memorial Fund , supporters of the KUG and others who believe in and give selflessly to support the Band Scholars.

We neither would, nor could survive without their help. Thank-You.
