The "Goin' Band from Raiderland," a time-honored tradition at Texas Tech is celebrating its 90th anniversary. Over the years, thousands of Goin' Band members have proudly donned the uniform and dedicated countless hours to fill the campus with the sounds of spirit. As members graduate and move on, new students step in to fill the ranks.

Sometimes these new members come to campus with strong ties to the past, as sons and daughters literally follow in their parents footsteps.
