Basketball Pep Band
MUS 111 Section 01
(Winter Only)

The GVSU Basketball Pep Band is an auditioned ensemble (class) that is open to any student at GVSU, and each member is paid $450 after the completion of the season. The band plays at the home games of the the men's and women's basketball teams. Travel to GLIAC and NCAA tourney games is another benefit of membership. In 2016, the pep band traveled to Sioux Falls, SD to cheer on our Final Four Women's Team! Comprised of 40 members, the pep band energizes the game environment before, during and after the games. If you want to be a part of a great "family," carry on our sense of pride, work hard, and above all have fun in performing for the best fans in the country, then the GVSU Basketball Pep Band is for you!
