Basketball Pep Band

The WVU Basketball Pep Band is a highly select group of students who perform for all home men's and women's basketball games. The group also travels to support the teams in the Big 12 and NCAA/NIT tournaments. Recent travel destinations have included New York City; Oklahoma City; Dallas; Kansas City, MO; Baton Rouge; Tampa; Austin, TX; Albuquerque; Virginia Beach; and Indianapolis for the men's Final Four among many other great destinations at no cost to the members!

This group is open to any student at WVU but is selected by a competitive audition which will occur sometime in the mid part of the fall semester. Instrumentation for this exciting group is limited to alto, tenor, and bari saxes; trumpets; mellophones; trombones; baritones; tubas; drumset; and bass guitar. The group receives a complete uniform comprised of apparel that includes shirt, warm-up outfit, and shoes. Even though this is technically a spring semester class, the group is formed and rehearses and performs before the end of the fall semester. Information about auditions for this group will be announced during marching band rehearsals sometime late in the month of September.
