Pep Band

Pioneer Pep Band

Thank you for your interest in the Denver Pioneer Pep Band!!

Our main goal is to provide spirited entertainment and support during athletic events at Denver. If you are looking to have fun, play funky and exciting music, watch games, and make lifelong friends than this is the group for you!

Rehearsals take place on Thursdays at 7 pm at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts during fall quarter and occasionally during winter quarter as the hockey and basketball season are in full swing. The band mainly consists of wind, brass, and percussion instruments but we also invite guitar, bass and other string instruments.

The Pep Band performs mainly at hockey, men's and women's basketball games, and at an occasional University event. There are amazing benefits for members including cash, food, athletic gear and all expenses paid travel opportunities.

Students may enroll in pep band as a course. If you are enrolled in pep band it will fulfill course requirements for undergraduate arts and humanities students. For music majors, it counts in part as an undergraduate ensemble credit plus other significant advantages are provided to pep band members.

No matter what instrument you play, we are always looking to add new members and welcome back old ones. Whether you are a seasoned musician or just starting out, (or restarting) all levels are welcome. Pep Band members span all the college academic levels from undergraduates to graduates and even alumni.

The band also has an outreach program which invites and mentors local area elementary through high school age musicians to play with the band. This gives students experience playing and being part of a college pep band and provides a great fundraiser for their own instrumental music programs.

So, if you like to play awesome music, get rowdy, watch the game, please join us and take part in a great athletic and musical tradition at the University of Denver

Thank you and GO DENVER!
