Welcome to the WPI Pep Band website!
The Pep Band is a completely student-run performance organization that plays at all WPI home football and basketball games, a few away games, and occasional other events (non-WPI, like The Bachelor Winter Games) happening in the area.
Band Camp 2019: August 12th - 16th
Deadline for Marching Applications: Monday July 1st
The Pep Band is a spirited bunch that has much to offer its members, including friendship, pizza, movie nights, parties, and most importantly, fantastic music! Here is a little example of what we’re all about.
The WPI Pep Band has 3 forms of membership:
|- Perform (play music, march drill) in the halftime show during the football season||- Perform (spin flags, rifles) in the halftime show during the football season|
|- Play stands music in the stands for both football and basketball games||- Play stands music in the stands for both football and basketball games|
|- [Optional] Perform in the Winter Guard|
|- Attend Band Camp (see below)||- Attend Band Camp (see below)|
The band welcomes everyone – Don’t be discouraged if you’ve never played, marched, or spun before; we can help you learn! See the New Member FAQ for more information about time commitments and other useful information.
The Pep Band also offers physical education credit for those participating in football and/or basketball season. Participation in Pep Band for four seasons will therefore fulfill your university physical education requirement. Despite being available for academic credit, rehearsals and performances are still very casual and loads of fun.
Our halftime show for fall of 2019 will be How To Train Your Dragon

To help prepare the halftime show, we will be holding a band camp from August 12th - 16th, which is immediately before New Student Orientation. Drumline and pit members should arrive a day early, August 11th, for part auditions. If you will be joining us as a marching member, you will be required to attend. We will need you to let us know whether you are interested in marching with us by Monday, July 1st, in order to prepare for your arrival and band camp.
Currently, we are looking for new members for football season! Please feel free to contact the officer board at email@example.com if you have any questions or you are interested in joining us for football or basketball season.
