Our Mission

The reason for this band’s creation is to help boost the school spirit among Cal Poly Pomona Students.
We do our best to play at every home basketball game, some of the away games, and some of the other sports and activities around campus. We are always here to show our Bronco Pride in the best way we know how. by playing music and cheering as loud as we can.

Our Goal
Our goal is to lend out support to our fellow Cal Poly Students and to keep spirits high in victory and defeat. We try to maintain our musicianship but at the same time our prime directive is to keep learning new music, pushing ourselves every bit of the way, and to just have fun.
