Hey, I'm Brendan and I will be one of your 2017 Racer Band drum majors! I'm a junior economics major with a double minor in music and political science, and I'm from Murray. I'm also a member of the Honors College. This will be my third season in Racer Band, having been in the saxophone section my first two years.
