PEP BAND NEEDED - 12/31 vs. carolina

Dec 21, 2016 by John Gorta

HEY BAND!

GTBAA needs your help! GT Athletics requested a band to play at the men's basketball game on Saturday, December 31st.
As most of you know, the active GTYJMB will be in Jacksonville for the TaxSlayer Bowl. This is where you all come in...
We need to gather a Pep Band to play for this game, which is nationally televised against a major conference opponent

  • Report time is 11:15 a.m. at the West Entrance off of Fowler St. across from the Tennis Center.
  • The uniform is white GTBAA or GT Band polo and jeans.
  • Athletics will be providing food, swag and additional tickets for family members.
  • Athletics may even up the incentives since they know this game is on New Year's Eve and at the same time as the bowl.

Our goal is a group of at least 30 with solid instrumentation. Yes, that means we need 1st trumpets...

Sign up HERE
