The Wake Forest University Athletic Bands consist of the Marching Band and Pep Bands and are collectively referred to as the
Spirit of the Old Gold and Black (SOTOGAB).

 SOTOGAB is part of the Wake Forest University Athletics Department and Music Department and is the epitome of Wake Forest passion and pride.

A collection of the finest and most dedicated students, SOTOGAB is the prime example of what it means to be a Demon Deacon.
