2014 Alumni Pep Band
For those of you who aren't aware, in February 2013, we put together the first Alumni Pep Band to help fill in during an important Men's home basketball game that coincided with an important School of Music event. From everything I heard, people had a great time...so much so that people were asking me at Homecoming if we would be doing this again this year. I've spoken with Dr. Thomas (Director of Bands) and the Athletics Department, and they're both completely on board with the 2nd Annual Alumni Pep Band. For those of you who participated last year, you know that this isn't strictly an "alumni" event, since we also allowed any current pep band members who weren't otherwise busy with Showcase of Bands stuff to go ahead and play if they wanted to, so we're going to continue to do that so that we can make sure to have a good turnout and "full" sound.
February 22nd - This is the last home game for the Western Women's BBall team, and the same weekend as the Showcase of Bands, so the music department is not able to provide a pep band for this event. The women will be taking on South Dakota at 4:30 PM.
Check back later for more information and I hope to see many of you at the games on 2/22.
