Helloooooo Pepband!
Are you ready for t-shirts!?! I hope so because it’s about to be T-SHIRT-PALOOZA UP IN HERE!!!!!!! Ok, might have gotten a little excited there, but what I was trying to say is: The new shirts have arrived and we will be handing them out at this week’s practice to anyone who has not yet received one. New members and members who do not own any official Pepband shirt yet will be given priority at this week’s practice only so please show up or send me a message if you are unable to attend but need one set aside for you! After new members are taken care of, previous members who need replacements etc. will be served. Other than that, easy week ahead! Just one rehearsal happening so we’ll have to make it extra fun. See you all soon!

Helloooooo Pepband!
Welcome to week 6! Hoping you all had (or are currently having) an awesome Halloween. It should be a pretty relaxing week for us so take a look at our events and fill out the super spooky attendance form! :)
    Tuesday November 1st - Rehearsal at RIMAC Concourse Lobby 7:00pm-10:00pm
      We’re going to….. wait for it……. play some music! I know, unexpected right?

      Drums in Spaaaaace!!!! Hmmm… That wouldn’t be very noisy actually. Probably a bad decision altogether really. You know what, scrap that, we’ll just do practice as usual. That should be fine. Meeting in the Dugout, not the Green Room!
    Stay tuned for another email about additional events coming up later this week!
