Thank you so much for supporting the Maverick Machine – We aren’t a group of people that play music for sports. We are all parts of a machine. Without one piece it won’t work properly. We are the fans when no one is there, we are the support when teams fall. We are the first to arrive and the last to leave. We are, the Maverick Machine.

At this time we are in a huge growth period and need equipment for the new members we are expecting. Our low brass instruments are old and out of shape – in order to improve our sound we need to provide the students the highest quality matching instruments that we can. When the band returned we did the best we could, but now it is time to move to the next level.

In order for us to perform with high quality on the field and in the stands we need quality uniforms and instruments. Since the return of the Maverick Machine, we have worked to assemble a collection of instruments for our students to use at little to no cost. This allows ANY student to participate. Many of the instruments do not match and several were purchased used. It would be incredible for us to purchase matching large brass instruments to provide the best opportunity for our students to perform at a high level.

With the growth of the Maverick Machine, it is anticipated that we will need 12 tubas, 8 baritones and 8 mellophones.

Your generous support makes everything possible for our Minnesota State Mankato Maverick Machine. We hope you will consider a tax-deductive donation. Join us today with a gift that will make an impact for our Maverick Machine students.
