Hi Pepband!

I hope everyone’s been having a fantastic summer so far! Do you know what would make it even better? Pep gigs!

On Thursday, July 17th, the event planners of the Balboa Park gig from last year have asked us to come play again. Call time will be around 4 pm, and the gig ends around 10pm. Location is at Balboa Park (of course); I’ll send out parking specifics in a later email.

This gig brings in LOTS of money towards the band, so help out yourself and the rest of the band by joining us!

And while you’re in San Diego, why not check out the San Diego LGBT Pride Parade, on Saturday July 19thCall time (tentative) is 9am at cross streets of University Avenue and Normal Street in Hillcrest. We march through the city for a mile or so, showing our support for the LGBT-QIA community from UCSD and around the San Diego area. The parade starts at the University Avenue and Normal Street crossing. Be sure to show your pride by dressing up!

I will provide more details (ride info, etc) as we get closer to the events. In the meantime, contact me for any questions and concerns at nkculhane864@gmail.com or (714)907-6645.
See you soon,
