Laker Alumni Marching Band
Celebrating 47 years of Laker "PRIDE!"
Registration is LIVE for Homecoming 2022!
Join the GVSU Laker Alumni Marching Band for our annual homecoming performance on October 22, 2022
This year marks the 47th season of the Pride of the Midwest, so brush off your horn and don your favorite GVSU gear! We hope you'll join us to cheer on the Lakers as they face the Northern Michigan University Wildcats.
We are building our LAMB contact list to reach our alumni members by e-mail.
Encourage all LMB Alumni to submit their contact information!
Registration closes October 16, 2022.
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?
Registration includes (1) ticket to the homecoming football game, pre-game lunch with fellow Laker Marching Band Alumni, and a 2022 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.
