The All American Band from Tigerland Figurines
Louisiana State University got its own musical organization in 1893 thanks to two student cadets. Averaging thirteen members through its formative years, the band now boasts of more than 320 members today. In the 1930's it was Louisiana's famous populist Governor Huey P. Long who took a personal interest in the LSU Band and set it on course for national prominence. Governor Long supervised many aspects of the bands image and saw to it that they trade in their military dress for a showy stadum prescence and introduced the LSU bands to its current colors of purple and gold. It wasn't until 1959 that a signature feature named the Ballet Corps, later named the LSU Golden Girl Dance Line, was added to the band.
This 17 piece band includes one drum major, two Golden Girls, two Color Guard Flag Girls, one piccolo musician, one saxophone musician, one clarinet musician, one mellophone musician, one marching baritone musician, one trumpet musician, one trombone musician, one sousaphone musician, one cymbal musician, one tenor drum musician, one snare drum musician and one bass drum musician.
