About the Frost Band of the Hour
The Band of the Hour is the marching band of the University of Miami, and its Miami Hurricanes athletic teams. It is also referred to as the Frost Band of the Hour, in honor of Dr. Phillip Frost and Patricia Frost, generous donors to UM’s marching band program and the naming donors of the University of Miami Frost School of Music.

The Band of the Hour was named in 1948 after a Henry Fillmore march, “The Man of the Hour.” It has existed in one form or another since 1928. Along with its commitment to musical and artistic excellence, the Band of the Hour has maintained a long tradition of service to the University of Miami.

The University of Miami Band of the Hour is the largest and most spirited student organization on the UM campus and draws its membership from the entire student body, representing every state and most majors.
