About Us

The Band - What We Do

The Georgetown University Pep Band is a student musical organization (of about 85 members) that performs at GU Sporting Events as well as other functions (such as the annual Hoyathon, a 24 hour dance marathon). We perform at all home football games, women's basketball games, and men's basketball games. After the regular basketball season is completed, all band members have the opportunity to travel to post season play with the basketball teams. During the 2006-2007 men's basketball season, the band traveled to New York City for the Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden, Winston-Salem, NC for the first and second rounds of the NCAA tournament, East Rutherford, NJ for the East Regional Semi-final and Finals, and finally to Atlanta, GA for the Final Four at the Georgia Dome. The band plays everything from traditional "pep band music" (Final Countdown) to classic rock (Carry On Wayward Son) to current hit songs (Goin' Down). We welcome musicians of all levels and abilities. There are no auditions to join the Pep Band, but there is a basic music proficiency assessment. If you are interested in joining the GU Pep Band, please see the "Join Now!" link on the main page. Hoya Saxa!
