Furman University Athletics is grateful for the longstanding support and excellence of The Paladin Regiment and enthusiastically encourages Paladin fans to attend Furman Band concerts throughout the year!


Founded in excellence and maintained by tradition, Furman University’s Marching Band, The Paladin Regiment, has been continually
recognized as one of the premiere outdoor performing ensembles in the nation.
The Paladin Regiment Marching Band is 120+ members strong and is one of the finest groups of its kind in the nation; its reputation for excellence has been nationally recognized through performances on promotional albums distributed by Jensen publications. Directed by Jay Bocook, the Paladin Regiment has entertained audiences at professional football games, Disney World shows, and numerous regional exhibitions, including state marching championships. It is the aim of the marching band, drum line, Furman Dance Company and Colorguard to provide our audiences with varied and entertaining shows that also contain leading-edge drill and creative musical arrangements. Open to all interested and qualified students, rehearsals begin prior to the start of school and meet 3-5 times weekly until late October. Membership fulfills music scholarship requirements. Marching Band Directors: Mr. Jay Bocook and Dr. Leslie Hicken
