FSU Band Day is open to all area high school bands. Expose your students to the world-renowned Marching Chiefs as they perform a pregame concert, during the game, and at halftime. Free admission to the game is provided to high school band students, their directors, and (in restricted quantity) official chaperones.

Over the past thirty years, tens of thousands of high school band students have enjoyed the sights and sounds of college football. We cordially invite all high school band directors to bring their students to Band Day 2023.

Save the date for Band Day 2023:

NOVEMBER 18: University of Northern Alabama, Kick-Off has not been determined.

To participate in FSU Band Day, call Chelsea at 850-644-3507. You must be a high school band director to reserve a space in FSU Band Day.

Block List 2023


Thanks to everyone completing an audition. We have taken as many students as possible. Our numbers were up this year and ‘making the band’ was not a given. Some hard decisions were necessary. If you did not make Chiefs, we invite you to participate in the Campus Band with no audition required, or you may ‘open’ audition (early next week) for the Concert Band. Don’t be discouraged; please try again next year!

Regular Block Positions are designated by a letter (for each section) and a number. Alternator Positions are designated with “a” or “b” next to the block position assignment. Chiefs in these positions will serve as alternators for Pregame and Halftime. As the season progresses, we will try to add more positions to halftime shows. The pregame numbers can not be changed.

Percussion alternators perform at the discretion of the band directors and percussion technician.

Majorette and Color Guard alternators will perform at the discretion of the band directors and visual teams coordinator.

The next rehearsal (Thursday afternoon, 8/24) begins at 1:30p with sectionals at Chiefs Field. Then we have a full music rehearsal at 3:00p in Ruby Diamond Concert Hall. We will begin pregame drill at 6:00p at the practice field. Those late or absent will lose their Pregame position to someone else. Please be patient as the first order of business is to take attendance. Your cooperation will be appreciated.



12:30p eFlip Pick-up, Field House (first year winds only)

12:30p Optional try-on marching shoes at Field House

1:30p Music Sectionals, Chiefs Field

3:00p Full Music Rehearsal, Ruby Diamond Concert Hall

4:30p Dinner Break

6:00p Marching Rehearsal (Pregame), Chiefs Field

If you are on the Block List and you are not present for tonight’s rehearsal, then you will lose your pregame position.



To order your Marching Chiefs shoes…

Go to the website <> Select Student Login My State: Florida My City: Tallahassee Banner: FSU Marching Chiefs White Dinkle Shoes are $48 White Athletic Socks are $4 (but you can provide your own)

If you are unsure what size to buy, we will have shoes for you to try on at the field at rehearsal. Half sizes and Wide sizes are available.

You have until Friday, August 25, at 12 noon to place the order. We need this quick ordering window so they arrive in time for the first game. They will be shipped to the band office and distributed at rehearsal.



Instrument check out will occur between 12 noon and 1:30p at the Field House. Be sure to check out an instrument BEFORE the 1:30p sectional rehearsal.

Marching Chiefs Travel Fund

Magic happens when the Chiefs hit the road. They bring the sounds that unite Seminole fans everywhere, from the unrelenting war chant to the deeply moving “Hymn to the Garnet and the Gold.” They inspire our great athletic teams to “strive for victory,” and they create a bond among generations of band members that is cherished forever. Our goal is to spread the Seminole spirit by sending the Chiefs to additional away games. The Marching Chiefs have been excellent stewards of their financial resources, but additional support is needed if we are to expand our reach. Please consider making a contribution, large or small, to get the Chiefs on the road to additional games, to inspire more fans, and to stand strong with the team. Go ‘Noles! Go Chiefs!

Campaign for New Instruments

Initiated in 2013, the New Instrument Fund has already provided numerous top-quality instruments for our Marching Chiefs. But keeping the inventory in top condition will always be a priority.

Our students deserve equipment that will allow them to sound their very best. Your tax-deductible gift to the instrument campaign will be used to ensure that we keep the sound of the war chant ringing strong throughout Doak Campbell Stadium well into the future.
