The Spirit of Troy
The University of Southern California marching band began in the fall of 1880. Today the band consists of 300 student musicians and auxiliaries. It was the Trojan marching band that developed the unique "drive-it" style of marching and the "rock-chart" sound that has been copied by colegiate programs across the country. The Trojan marching band is sometimes referred to as "Hollywood's Band" as a result of their Southern California location, their multiple silver screen credits, and their longtime tradition of performing alongside great musicians and rock bands of their times.
Numerous uniform details sets this marching apart from nearly any other band in the entire country - starting with their ancient, gold, Torjan-style helmets featuring those tall feathered plumes, moving down to their standard white gloves, spats and, of course, their dark sunglasses - it is so SoCal! And their drum major, who can miss him with his shiney breast plate and sterling sword?
This 12 piece band includes one drum major, one saxophone musician, one flute musician, one clarinet musician, one trumpet musician, one mellophone musician, one trombone musician, one sousaphone musician, one snare drum musician, one bass drum musician, one quadra-tom drum musician and one cymbal musician. The band is featured wearing their signature sunglasses.
