Keeping the Goin' Band Goin' Since 1987

The Goin' Band Association

Our organization exists to provide support and resources to improve the quality and success of the Texas Tech University Band.



From the earliest days of the Tech Band Alumni Association, our mission has remained the same: to provide support and resources to improve the quality and success of the Texas Tech University’s Goin’ Band from Raiderland.

Originally, our organization was founded as a group of die-hard Tech Band alumni who wished to stay in contact with one another and to establish a scholarship endowment for future students wishing to join the largest and oldest student organization on campus.

Since that time, we have expanded our reach to include family, friends, and fans of the Goin’ Band, but our goals and purposes remain the same – to support the students any way that we can.

Our hope is to give back to the organization that gave us so much so that the Goin’ Band will continue to entertain the crowds each week during the games and other performances each year.



For over three decades, the members of the Goin’ Band Association have graciously donated their time, energy, and money for the sole purpose of giving back to the Goin’ Band. Among the many years of support, the Goin’ Band Association has provided to the Goin’ Band:

  • A scholarship endowment for any band student, regardless of major

  • A brand new Bandwagon (cargo van)

  • Cookout for the students during Summer Band

  • Funding for CD and DVD productions

  • Embroidery of Senior Spats for all graduating seniors

  • Research and addresses for ΚΚΨ & ΤΒΣ alumni

  • Bowl game awards, shirts, and dinners

  • Alumni Band Day funding and organization

  • New equipment and equipment cleaning/repair

  • A basketball band when students are on break

  • Apparel for the Goin’ Band uniform, including neck gaiters during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic
