Not quite ready to give up that instrument you learned in high school? Want to support Embry-Riddle in the coolest way possible? Then join one of only a handful of musically inclined clubs on campus: the Pep Band and Drum Corp here at ERAU! We perform for the: Girl’s Volleyball team, Men’s Basketball team, the newly formed Women’s Basketball team and anything else that requires our unique brand of “rent-a-mob with instruments”.
As a member of the pep band you would attend practices twice a week (as long you don’t have a prior academic commitment) on Mondays and Thursdays from 6:45-8:00pm, regularly perform at games and have the opportunity to enjoy some non-instrument time with your bandmates (such as: midnight trips to Denny’s and Steak and Shake after games, home-cooked dinner nights, etc.). Transportation to and from games (and even to and from our out-of-band activities) will be provided by members of the band with a vehicle, so no worries if you think you can’t get off campus.
Please feel welcome to join us for our first practice on August 28th (Thursday) at 6:45pm, if you do not have your instrument with you at the time you can still sit in or pick up one of the Pep Band’s own instruments yourself. As one of the louder clubs on campus we have our very own special building. It is located across Clyde Morris Blvd. in the second modular (aka mobile unit/trailer) behind the ROTC building. If you think the directions are too confusing you can meet up with one of our members inside of the Student Village main entrance around 6:30. They will be wearing a blue, yellow and white jersey with Pep Band @ ERAU in white and yellow on the front. Please bring your instrument with you if you have it. If you do not have an instrument with you, stop by anyway! If you cannot make it to the first practice you can come any Monday or Thursday at 6:45 and just ask around for someone important or find our table at the activities fair.
If you have any questions please email Adam Cascio: firstname.lastname@example.org ask anyone roaming around campus in a blue, yellow and white jersey as described above.
We love having new members that are dedicated to performing and look forward to meeting everyone that comes to the first/second/twenty-ninth practice.
