Alumni Band

Alumni Band
The Alumni Band was originally formed back in the 1970's and was called the "Old Timer's Band". Over the years the Alumni Band disappeared, then re-emerged in 1990, when some alumni members got together to form an organization that would support the "Spirit of Northwestern" through scholarships. This band did not perform at any games and lived only a couple of years.
