Razorback Band Archive Project

Update: Thanks to so many alumni and friends, we have met our goal with two days to spare! Now, we have the opportunity to stretch our goal to help digitize recordings from 1964 to 1977. Let’s support preserving 14 more years of Razorback Band history by reaching $10,000 in donations! 


Over the past four decades, Razorback Band alumni Don King, Bill Woolly, and David Woolly have documented the band’s rehearsals and performances through film and photography. The collection consists of 16mm reel-to-reel films, U-matic tapes, VHS tapes, and CD’s.

The goal of the Razorback Band Archive Project is to preserve these recordings through digital conversion. Once completed, halftime and pregame performances from 1978 to the present will be available to view online through University Libraries’ Special Collections. Imagine the fun of spotting yourself on the field and sharing favorite performances with your family!

This project will not only provide Razorback fans and band alumni with ready-access to historically valuable materials but will also be an important long-term investment. By converting these files, this project will preserve an important piece of university history for future generations to come.

The first step is digitizing this one-of-a-kind collection, which will cost approximately $8,500 and will take 12 to 18 months to complete. Please support the Best in Sight and Sound by making a gift today!
