Varsity Pep Band
The Wright State University Raider Pep Band provides musical entertainment and spirit at home Men’s and Women’s Basketball Games as well as other select events around campus and the community. The ensemble, comprised of WSU students, performs traditional rock, high energy contemporary music, and cheers to help excite the crowd and drive the Raiders to another Horizon League Championship and NCAA berth. Members of the band receive free admission to all games performed, plus the opportunity to receive scholarship money. In 2008, select members of the band traveled with the Men’s Basketball team to Buffalo, New York for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Tournament and every year the band travels for the Horizon League tournaments.
The band splits into "Green" and "Gold" bands of equal instrumentation to cover all the events and is made up flutes, clarinets, saxes, mellophones (F horn), trumpets, trombones, tubas, electric bass, and drum set. Membership is open to all WSU students, and is limited only by instrumentation, so sign up early to ensure a seat!
If you have any questions, please contact the Athletic Band Director, Mr. Aaron Jocobs.
