Bango was a phrase coined by Eddie Doucette, the original "Voice of the
Bucks," whenever a player connected on a long-range basket. When the club
held a contest to name their new mascot, a few thousand entries were
received. The most popular of which was "Bango." Sherry Kussman of New
Berlin, Wisconsin won a drawing among seven people who submitted the Bango
name. For her efforts, Sherry won a pair of season tickets.
With the name in place, on October 18, 1977, Bango was born. That date
signified the home opener of the 1977-78 season for the Bucks. The game
pitted Milwaukee against the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar-led Los Angeles Lakers in
the Milwaukee Arena.
Bango is starting his 24th season of energizing and entertaining fans. With
his signature pizza deliveries, dance moves and highflying dunks, this NBA
Buck gets right to the point.
Bango is a popular figure in the community and is available for your special
celebrations, corporate functions and even parades. Let Bango bring
excitement to your next event. To schedule your special Bango appearance,
call the Bucks Game Operations Department at 414-227-0500.
