Established in 1925, the Goin' Band from Raiderland is a 400-plus member marching band with over 60 majors represented. Being the oldest and largest student organization on campus, we are proud to uphold the traditions of Texas Tech University while embracing an environment of innovation and creativity.
We exist to entertain, to inspire and to be excellent.
We pride ourselves in performing a different show each week for Red Raider football fans. With a mixture of traditional, classic rock, top 40, jazz and everything in between, Goin' Band exists to entertain.
We exist to inspire people to use their gifts to benefit others. Each year we perform for area high schools, band festivals and university events. Goin' Band also goes beyond the norm and donates its time and energy in promoting great foundations like Be The Match and Operation Turkey as a way to give back to the community.
...setting the standard from within.
To Be Excellent
Goin' Band strives for excellence on and off the field, by creating a culture of mutual respect, individual accountability and high performance achievement.
Founded in 1971, Zeta Iota Tau is a mock fraternal organization which comprises the members of the Texas Tech Drumline
ZIT members are selected based on percussive ability, demonstrated leadership capabilities, and overall excellence. Auditions are held every year on the Sunday before Summer Band. Every spot is up for grabs each year, with no guaranteed spots for returning members. Auditions are held in a trickle-down format in the following order: Snare, Tenor, Bass and Cymbals. Results will be announced immediately following the auditions for each section. If a prospective member does not make a particular instrument, they are encouraged to try out on another.
Texas Tech Twirlers
Established in 1927, the Texas Tech Twirlers perform at football games, pep rallies, and other school functions. The twirlers also compete during the spring semester and the summer at regional, state, and national competitions.
Most recently named the 2015 National Collegiate Twirl Team Champions.
