A Message from Our Director
Football game days are so special to so many people in this state and beyond who root for the Crimson Tide. While we wish the Million Dollar Band in its entirety could attend a full season of games, we are excited to have football back and certainly understand the limitations of reduced crowd capacity. This is especially true considering these limitation are being implemented for the safety of both the students and fans. We have worked carefully with the UA Athletic Department to achieve the best possible outcome for all concerned relative to these unique circumstances and our overall environment.
All of the 400 Million Dollar Band members will attend one of the five home games, and we are grateful that our senior members will have the opportunity to attend two.
Million Dollar Band members will take several safety precautions to protect themselves and others in attendance including:
- Always wearing face coverings (instrumentalists will wear specially designed masks that allowed them to play with their mask on)
- Social distancing in the stands
- Social distancing from fans
- No pregame pep rallies
Five different bands made up of 96 instrumentalist, color guard members and Crimsonettes will perform in the stands at the five home games. A greatly reduced staff of 10 members, including managers and trainers will attend each of the five home games as well.
Regardless of the number, the Million Dollar Band will continue to provide the spirit and excitement fans come to expect at Crimson Tide football games!
Dr. Ken Ozzello, Director, The University of Alabama “Million Dollar Band.
