Gardner-Webb University Pep Band

Pep Band

About the Band

The Pep Band performs in the stands at all Gardner-Webb home football games in the fall, and most of the men’s home basketball games in the spring. In addition, the band attends both the men’s and women’s basketball tournament for the Big South Conference in March each year. The band is also called upon to perform other school spirit activities around campus throughout both semesters.

There is no audition to play in the band; parts are assigned at the first rehearsal of the fall semester based on ability, desire, and needs of the band. You must sign up for MUSC 188 (fall) and MUSC 187 (spring) to participate.
