The Million Dollar Band began as a military band in 1914. The band gained its famous name in 1922 when, as described in the 1948 Alabama football media guide, the band exhibited its fund-raising prowess by soliciting money from merchants to get to a game at Georgia Tech. Today, the Million Dollar Band, recognized nationally for its colorful and entertaining halftime presentations, is an exciting part of the Crimson Tide spirit and tradition.

Current member

I am a current member of the MDB and I find this baffling!! Instead of criticizing our sound, have you considered the air temperature and wind speed? It was pretty cold out there, and yes temperature does play a factor in the sound. I'm pretty sure Dr. Butler was the best director, but that's in the past. It's almost the 100th yr of the MDB. everyone has their opinion, but that condescending remark is sad for a past MDB member.

Better sound PLEASE

As a proud former member of the Million Dollar Band under Col. Carlton K Butler, I was excited to be able to see the Band's halftime performances again. But your sound and miking of the announcer and band is very poor. I could hear mostly crowd noise.
I'm afraid you need lessions in miking the Band from the networks. Please do better.
