W elc o m e t o t he 2 0 17 -18 Husky M ar c hing B and! Congratulations on making it into one of the most exciting and musically-talented university marching bands in the Pac-12 Conference and indeed the entire nation! You will soon be swept up in 87 years of tradition. You will also be learning the songs and choreography that have become a staple at UW sporting events. Our band exists to support our athletic teams and their loyal fans, and we simply love to perform and entertain. In addition to playing at all major UW sporting events, gigs are a huge part of what we do and can be the highlights of the season. The truly amazing thing about HMB, though, is that we are a family. The people that make up this band are some of the most friendly, generous, and devoted people you?ll find anywhere. We support each other through ups and downs, and before you know it this school of 45,000 undergraduates will start to feel smaller. These first few weeks may be rough with the immense amount of material to learn, music checks, new marching or music styles, and trying to remember everyone?s name. However, as many of your veteran peers will assure you that, it will all be worth it. You will never forget the first time they ran onto the field with their best friends, to the cheers of 70,000! This publication was created with support from the Publications Committee of the Gamma Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi, National Honorary Band Service Fraternity, as well as the veteran members and Student Staff of the Husky Marching Band, and our on-field and press box photographers. We hope this guide will help ease your transition into the HMB experience. On behalf of everyone who assisted in the creation of this publication, welcome to the University of Washington Husky Marching Band! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to reach out to this email: Happy Reading, and Go Dawgs!

SONGS TO KNOW B o w Do w n t o W ashing t o n Bow Down to Washington Bow Down to Washington Mighty are the men who wear the purple and the gold Joyfully we welcome them within the victor's fold We will carve their names (Names!) In the Hall of Fame (Fame!) To preserve the memory of our devotion So heaven help the foes of Washington They're trembling at the feet of mighty Washington Our boys are there with bells (Bells!) Their fighting blood excels (Excels!) It's harder to push them over the line than pass the Dardanelles! So victory's the cry of Washington Our leather lungs together with a "Rah! Rah! Rah!" And o'er, the land, the loyal Band We'll sing the glory of Washington forever!

Hist o r ic al T idb it : B o w Do w n t o W ashing t o n In 1915, the University of Washington held a competition for the purpose of procuring a new fight song. The winner, Lester Wilson, was awarded 25 dollars for writing ?Bow Down to Washington.? It is rumored that Wilson could not transcribe music, so he plunked the tune out on piano while his friend transcribed it for him! Today, the Husky Marching Band plays a... few variations on this tune, including Bow Down, Bow II, Bow Little, Bow Chorus, Bow Special, and more! How many Bows can you name at the end of PSDs? Each comes with the signal for Bow (a thumbs down), followed by a unique gesture to communicate which variation we will be playing. Although this song is one that the Husky Marching Band plays at every practice and game, it is difficult to get tired of the majestic melodies and resonating harmonies that the song employs. Start memorizing, as we sing the lyrics before every practice!

UW A lm a M at er To her we sing who keeps the ward O'er all her sons from sea to sea Our alma mater Washington A health, a health we give to thee Child of the mighty western land You're the mother of a mighty place* Silent her gentle vigil holds In strength, purity and grace All hail! O Washington! Thy sons and daughters sing glad acclaim Through years of youth and loyalty And still in age we sing they fame In honor thy towers stand The battlements shine in dawning light And glow again in sunset rays (and rainbow skies)* All hail! O Washington!


*Modified from the official Alma Mater.

Tunes t o Kno w A SA P The Husky Marching Band plays a variety of songs over the course of the season, ranging from classics (e.g. Johnny's Mambo and Take On Me) to contemporary hits. Its five dynasty songs are listed below. Make sure you memorize these songs, as we'll be playing them a lot! Bow Down to Washington (Bow I and II) Vict'ry for Washington (V I and II) Everybody's Everything Louie-Louie Tequila

(YOUR OW N) BRAD'S WALL If you ever go down to the Dawg House, you will notice a huge board with all of our pictures on it. (Yes, each and every single one of us!) Believe it or not, Brad will know all of our names about two weeks into the school year (depending on how close your knees are to 90 degrees, how many songs you have memorized, etc.). Now it is your turn! On this page are Senior Staff, Student Staff, and all of the Section Leaders. Get to know their faces well, for they will be happy to answer any questions you have.
