The Argo Athletic Band is the premier performing ensemble at UWF athletic events. Bringing the sounds of Argo pride, the band performs at all home football and basketball games and select University functions.

Under the direction of the Department of Music faculty, band membership is open to all UWF students with musical backgrounds. Music and non-music majors are welcomed to join; band members are a valued part of UWF's campus life.

Join the Band
Band students play at an athletic event.

In its first season, the newly formed Argo Athletic Band will perform at all home football and basketball games. We are looking for brass, woodwind, and percussion students to participate in the band for the 2018-19 season.

The University already has an exceptional pep band that performs at all home basketball games. That tradition will continue and expand as part of the UWF Athletic Band Program. Students will receive a service award of, at least, $250 per season.

The Department of Music and UWF Athletics are reaching out to recently graduated high school seniors, as well as current students who are band alumni. We are fortunate to have an incredibly strong band tradition in the public schools in the Northwest Florida area and are hoping to draw upon this resource. 

Email Laura Noah, director of percussion or Josh Bledsoe, director of winds and brass at for more information.

Argo Fight Song

Words and Music by Joseph T. Spaniola (BMI)

Argos clad in green and blue.
Standing steadfast valiant and true.
Strength and might, an awesome sight,
The Pride of West Florida! (Go Argos!)

Lift your voice in praise and song.
Brave and fearless, Argo strong.
Deep within each Argo beats
The Heart of a Champion!
