USC Trojan Marching Band

Founded in 1880, the same year as USC. In November 1918, at the end of World War I, members of the TMB led a victory parade of America's returning servicemen in New York City. “Fight On”, the fight song of the University was composed in 1922 and became a part of the TMB tradition. In 1923, the school's alma mater, “All Hail”, was composed by a member of the TMB, Al Wesson. The TMB gave its first national radio concert on CBS on April 19, 1929. The band participated in the 1932 Summer Olympics held in Los Angeles, forming the Olympic Braid in the opening ceremonies in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum (coincidentally USC's home stadium).
