What does the homecoming performance entail?

Homecoming typically draws ~100 LAMB members to perform before and during the football halftime show. Members attend an a.m. rehearsal with the Laker Marching Band to run through music and learn simple drill sets for the afternoon/evening performances. LAMB members march as a group to Lubbers Stadium and perform alongside the LMB during the football game with stand tunes and more. 


What is included in registration?

Everyone is required to have a ticket to the game in order to enter Lubbers Stadium. If you need a ticket, add it on during your registration and we will take care of ordering your ticket. Your ticket will be sent to the email you provide on the form a couple days before homecoming.

If you already have a ticket, season tickets, game day pass, etc. then you do not need to add a ticket to your registration.

Registration is a la carte, broken down as follows: 

  • Ticket to football game: $13 (required to enter the stadium, and includes a complimentary parking pass for the game day parking lots)
  • Jets Pizza Lunch meal ticket: $5

All participants will receive a complimentary 2023 commemorative collector's LAMB pin.

What if I don't have an instrument of my own?

Please indicate if you are in need of an instrument in your registration. University owned instruments may be available for use depending on the instrument/current availability.
