Alumni Band FAQ

Q: What do we wear?
A: We will be wearing:

  • WHITE GTBAA or GT Band polos (IN GOOD CONDITION)
  • Khakis
  • The optional GTBAA ball cap.

If the weather calls for it, you are welcome to wear a white GTBAA fleece. GTBAA polos, fleeces, and ball caps are available for purchase through the online store.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: This year, the total homecoming registration fee is $35. This includes dues, pregame meal, and other fees to cover costs of the Alumni Band program. GTBAA will be allocating 20% of all registration fees and dues to service for the active Yellow Jacket Band.

Q: Where do my dues and registration fees go?
A: The registration fees and/or dues cover a number of things to support Homecoming each year and help keep GTBAA functioning. GTBAA also uses what little is leftover to support the active Band through service projects and alumni/active events.

  • Operating Costs
    • Website maintenance and development
    • Banking and online payment processing fees
    • Equipment and replacing broken nice things
    • Apparel/SWAG inventory
  • Homecoming Costs
    • Outstanding Junior Award - cash award, plaque, etc.
    • Surround Sounds concert reception and decoration
    • Printing and materials
  • Service and activities/events with the active Band

Q: Can I purchase tickets to the game?
A: Yes, you can! GTBAA and Chris Moore worked with GT Athletics Ticketing to get a block available for Alumni Band participants to purchase tickets through a special online link, which will be provided to you after you complete the registration form.

Q: What time does toe meet leather on GAMEDAY?
A: The earliest we will know is Monday, October 21. The ACC can still take the 6-day option to announce the kickoff time for a Georgia Tech home game this season.

Q: Can my family join me?
A: Yes! Your family is absolutely welcome to join you during all of our pregame activities up until marchdown. Due to NCAA regulations, which have been in place since 2007, nobody under the age of 18 years old is allowed on the field and sidelines. Only performing alumni with the proper credentialing (i.e. wristband) will be allowed stands with the Yellow Jacket Band.
