The Official Band of the City of Riverside
Since its humble beginning, with only 16 members showing up for the first band camp in August of 1984, more than 3,000 people have walked through the doors of the HG-101 band room. In 2013, the RCC Marching Tigers celebrated their 30th Anniversary season.
The Marching Tigers have been the lead unit in the Tournament of Roses Parade, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Fiesta Bowl Parade, Hollywood Christmas Parade, and most recently La Grande Parade de Paris, Champs-Élysées — the new Paris New Year’s Day Parade.
The Marching Tigers have also performed at four of the five Disney theme parks, as well as being the only band ever to perform in exhibition two years in a row at the Bands of American Grand National Championships at the former RCA Dome in Indianapolis, Indiana (1994 and 1995). They are also the only American college band to perform in exhibition at the All-Japan Marching Band Championships at the Budokan Hall in Tokyo (1987 and 1993).
Athletic events are familiar territory for the Marching Tigers. They’ve played many halftime shows for the Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Raiders, and San Diego Chargers, as well as opening day for the California Angels. the Marching Tigers have also performed for the Utah Summer Games in 1989, the U.S. Olympic Festival in 1991, and the Disneyland Pigskin Classic in 1993 and 1994. They were also the official pep band for the 1995 and 1996 John Wooden Classic at the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim.
The marching band is also seen at every home RCC football game.
