The Spirit of the Old Gold and Black

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 Athletic Department and Music Department and is the heart and soul of Wake Forest.
A collection of the finest and most dedicated students, SOTOGAB strives to provide the prime example of what it means to be a Demon Deacon.

It is this ” . . . passion that defies explanation” that inspires SOTOGAB to continually represent Wake Forest and the Demon Deacons with
dignity, class, and integrity.
