For the last several years, the Duke University Marching Band (DUMB) has auctioned off a chance to be a guest conductor at certain Duke home games. This year of course is Coach K’s final season so having a front-row seat to games is going to be a lot of fun.

You have a chance to bid again and we would really recommend doing so. You can do it any year of course, and should, but this year is special and you’ll want to be a part of that - and here’s what you need to know.

And here’s what you’ll get as part of that experience.

  • three seats for the conductor’s guests (two guest seats together near the court in the bleachers of Section 19 and one standing-room-only guest seat in the band section),
  • a special courtside presentation,
  • conductor coaching,
  • a personalized conductor baton,
  • band rugbies (uniforms) for the guest conductor and guests,
  • four or more opportunities to conduct the band throughout the game,
  • a personalized, framed photograph to commemorate the occasion,
  • and a special place in history on the DBAA’s website.
