Costs for Participation

What does it cost to be in the band at UAB? Very little.

Most, if not all, of your expenses, are paid for by the University and the Band program. There is a uniform rental fee ($35) for maintenance and cleaning (except majorettes). There are no travel expenses to regular performances. However, there are some incidental costs which you will incur as a member of the Marching Blazers. These can include black marching band shoes ($45), two band t-shirts ($15), and band shorts ($20). The UAB Bands supply instruments for use in many of its ensembles. There is a small deposit for the use and maintenance of this equipment ($25) and there is a locker rental fee ($20). Thus, extra fees for all band members are LESS than $150 out of pocket for the regular season. Each summer, all band members receive periodic newsletters that explain important dates, deadlines, and fees.
