About the Texas Aggie Band Association

The Texas Aggie Band Association was formed in the 1970s for the primary purpose of supporting the FTAB with private money. It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, membership-based and led by volunteers. Intensely focused on supporting the Band, the TABA funds Texas A&M Foundation scholarships for bandsmen, sponsors certain Band-unique events, and provides direct financial aid to the Office of the Director of Bands. 

In the past year the TABA has funded: $120,000 endowment for Bugles & Banners, almost $40k in scholarships, tutoring, band sweaters, senior awards, & dinner, fish practice t-shirts & travel polos, BQ Ball, drum major's brass plating, and the new digital album

Join us for the TABA Meet & Greet

On October 27 from 6-8pm the TABA will be hosting a meet and greet (with snacks & drinks) at the Music Activities Center (MAC). Besides great fellowship, we will also hold a brief business meeting with the main topic being the election of officers for the Board of Directors. We will send out the slate of officers, as well as a list of the proposed board members before 10/27. If you cannot attend the meeting in person, there will be an opportunity to email your vote.
