UCSD Pepband is a student run organization that performs awesome music for various campus and community events. We allow students to continue enjoying their musical experience from various backgrounds. Prior musical experience is not required, and you can join us at any time of the year by attending any rehearsal or gig. We do not hold any auditions or have any monetary requirements for those who want to join.
Our main campus sporting events include basketball, volleyball, water polo, soccer, and hockey. Community events include Martin Luther King Jr. Parade, Light the Night, San Diego Pride Parade, and much more. We are also often hired by various campus organizations to provide quality music for their on-campus events.
We rehearse every week from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm Tuesdays usually at the RIMAC Green Room. Join us any time of the school year and we will be happy to show you the ways of the Pep.
Every third weekend of April, the band takes a trip to UC Davis to join in their Picnic Day festivities. We are one of six bands to be invited to play in the Picnic Day Parade and Battle of the Bands which last for 8 hours. It is a major trip for us – every year, we are excited to dress up to a wacky theme and show off our talents to the other bands and the massive audience.
Besides all the musical fun, we are an extremely social crew that you can easily connect with no matter how weird you are. Music is only the beginning!
