2020 CMB Uniform Information

Please note that due to the Coronavirus/Covid-19 Pandemic, there will be many departures from our usual procedures and all information presented in these pages is subject to change at any time. We're providing the best information we have at the present time, but circumstances can change quickly based upon mandates or recommendations from the State of Nebraska, City of Lincoln, NCAA, Big Ten Conference, UNL and its Athletic Department. Please be prepared to be flexible and know that the health and well-being of our students is our top priority.

We must have an accurate statement of your height and weight in order to locate a uniform that will fit you. Note these statistics when you complete the band camp confirmation form. Information about uniform and costume check out will be published when more information about the football season is available


We plan to use the marching band's alternate uniform for at least the beginning of the fall semester. This decision was made out of concern for student health and the difficulty of social distancing while fitting uniforms and costumes. This means all brass, woodwind, percussion and color guard members must have and wear the following items during performances. Twirlers have the choice of wearing the alternate uniform or their performance costume.

  • Red Band Polo shirt. Order via the appropriate band camp confirmation form for replacement shirts, or if you are new to the band.
  • Long black pants without any graphics, stripes or patterns. Purchase on your own. Twirlers and color guard may wear jazz pants.
  • All-black athletic or performance (dance or band) shoes. You may purchase on your own or order through the appropriate band camp confirmation form.

PLEASE NOTE: Unnatural hair color is not permitted in the Cornhusker Marching Band.
