RAM Band Handbook

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 Shania Isenberg and Paul Hann. The Band Staff includes: Music Arranger Frank Mahoney, Percussion Arrangers and Instructors Jason Keller and Jane Mahoney, Visual and Marching Instructor John Karos, Color Guard Instructor Kathy Windle, and Drill Writer Dan Kalantarian. The RAM Band is directed by Dr. Scott Hippensteel.

Experience the excitement of the 2018 RAM Band show, “Let The Good Times Roll”. Our performance opens with Rock this Town by the Brian Setzer Orchestra and is followed by a Justin Timberlake tune that will get everyone dancing, Can’t Stop the Feeling. Next we groove to Hallelujah and finish out the show with a medley of Let the Good Times Roll by Ray Charles and Signed, Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder. Thanks to the generosity of the Shepherd Alumni Association and the Shepherd Success Fund, the RAM BAND will officially reveal our new band uniforms at the first Shepherd home football game on September 15.
