Before the Green Machine

From the late 1960’s through the late 1990s, athletic bands at Mason operated mostly as student-led and populated ensembles with little faculty assistance or leadership. For a period in the 1980s, the pep band was referred to as the "Mound of Sound." There were also instances of George Mason Athletics collaborating with local high school bands when they were not able to constitute bands of Mason students. This was the case until the 2005-06 season.
