Thank you to all who participated in the 2019 Battle of the Bands: Magnolia Bowl! We are proud to announce that LSU's Tiger Band raised $30,543 by 540 supporters and Ole Miss’s Rebel Band raised $29,056 by 564 supporters. For those of you who weren’t able to join in the fun, you can make a gift to your favorite band at any time.



Our love of competition runs as deep as our history. This week we are honoring a 125-year tradition as we face off against Ole Miss’s Rebel Band in our Battle of the Bands! LSU is the reigning Magnolia Bowl champion, and this spirited competition will prove that our fans are the best, too.

To show your Tiger Band pride (and beat Ole Miss!), we encourage you to make a gift to our Battle of the Bands crowdfunding campaign. A gift of at least $18.93, in honor of our founding year, and $10 for students will make you a founding member of The Four Notes Club, the official alumni and supporters organization for Tiger Band! Whether you choose to become a member of The Four Notes Club or make a gift to the Band Development Fund, your gifts will provide future generations of Tiger Band members, LSU Golden Girls, and LSU Colorguard students an opportunity to be a part of a world-famous collegiate marching band while receiving a world-class education.

Tell your family and friends about the Battle of the Bands by using #BOTBMagnoliaBowl and #TheFourNotesClub on social media and tagging @LSUTigerBand.
