The RAM Band is one of the highlights of Shepherd University. Known for their strong commitment to musical excellence and exciting shows, the RAM Band is in great demand throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. The band is NOT limited to Music Majors and is open to ALL university students.

The Field Commanders are Chase Remsburg and Shania Isenberg. The Band Staff includes: Music Arranger Frank Mahoney, Percussion Arrangers and Instructors Jonathan Whitney and Jane Mahoney, Visual and Marching Instructor John Karos, Color Guard Instructor Anne Taylor, and Drill Writer Dan Kalantarian. The RAM Band is directed by Dr. Scott Hippensteel.

Experience the excitement of the 2017 RAM Band show, “Big Noise from Sheptown!” Our performance opens with the dynamic jazz samba, The Tiger of San Pedro and funks out to Vehicle by Ides of March. Our bluesy power ballad is Feeling Good by Michael Bublé. Next, we feature our awesome saxophone section in Woody Herman’s swing classic Four Brothers. We close the show with the uptempo swing powerhouse Big Noise from Winnetka.
