The Fresno State Bulldog Marching Band

is an NCAA Division-I collegiate marching band in the Mountain West Conference that performs at all Fresno State home football games and various other events on campus and in the community. Director of Athletic Bands, Steve McKeithen, leads the BMB to continue its storied tradition of excellence. The group takes pride in being the largest and most diverse student organization on campus. In addition to supporting Fresno State Athletics, the BMB hosts the annual Sierra Cup Classic and Sierra Cup Classic Indoor competitions, and Fresno State Band Day. In the last decade, the band has performed in the Rose Parade, St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), NFL games, and much more. Wherever it goes, the Best Band in the West proves itself as a relentless source of energy, enthusiasm, and entertainment as the loud and the proud soundtrack of the Red Wave.
