Who We Are
Boise State University's Keith Stein Blue Thunder Marching Band is one of the largest student organization on campus. Every year, we entertain thousands of Bronco fans while providing continuous support and energy for community and athletic events. We take pride in the hours we spend rehearsing, all to perform and represent the university in the best way possible.
To our members, we are family. We come from different walks of life. The majority of the Blue Thunder Marching Band consists of non-music majors. New members quickly meet others in the band that share similarities. Some develop "study-buddies" for the next four years, future roommates, friends for life, and as we found out at our banquet this year some even find their future spouses!
The Future of Blue Thunder
Because of this welcoming culture along with the continued growth of Boise State, the quality of the Athletics Department, the attractiveness of the City of Boise and more, Blue Thunder has seen substantial growth in the last few years...it's exciting!
This does, however, create a new set of challenges, particularly when it comes to providing uniforms for our members. Currently, we have students that are wearing uniforms that do not fit properly, and are out of options to remedy this with our current uniforms. More importantly, we are facing having to cap the number of students allowed to participate in Blue Thunder Marching Band simply because we do not have uniforms available.
