The band was founded in 2003 by Dan Havely primarily as an outlet for former Athens State University students to continue in their musical pursuits.  

Now, the band not only contains graduates of Athens State University, but members of the surrounding community as well.  The players encompass a wide range of ages and occupations.  Some are middle or high school students; some are local band directors; some are doctors; and some are engineers, just to name a few groups represented in the band.

The band rehearses on Monday nights from 7:00pm until 8:30pm.  It is available as a course at Athens State University.

The band is sponsored by Athens State University.
