In August 1977, Gary Zive attended the National Intercollegiate Band (N.I.B.) during the National Convention at UCLA. After returning, he spoke with Nancy Bates (now Gaines), and they decided to form a colony. Professor Charles Yates agreed to be the chapter sponsor for both groups. On December 16, 1978, Eta Mu and Zeta Xi were installed. In their first year, the chapter held a reception for Symphonic Band and the Wind Ensemble, hosted the Glendale Community College Band, and held the first band camp BBQ, which has become a band camp tradition.
