The purpose of the LHAB is to advance the interest of The University of Texas Longhorn Band (LHB) in establishing and maintaining the LHB as the foremost among bands of its type, to promote the cause of education (via scholarships), and to establish a mutually beneficial relationship between The University of Texas at Austin and former members of the LHB.
The University of Texas Longhorn Alumni Band began in 1964 with 67 members. Now, LHAB consists of over 4,000 members spanning 12 countries!
The Alumni Band meets annually for Band Day, for a weekend of camaraderie, playing/marching, and the annual Business Meeting. On game day, LHAB and LHB each perform half-time shows of their own and then combine to perform for the ever-appreciative DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium audience.
