University Pep Band

2023 pep band at the Conference Carolinas Basketball Tournament

The 2024 pep band interest form will be available in November 2023.

After marching season ends, the UNCP band gears up for basketball season.  The UNCP Pep Band is open to all UNCP students, regardless of their participation in marching band.  Sign-ups for pep band occur in November, and the band begins attending basketball games in January.

The band performs at all home men's and women's basketball games and supports the team(s) at the conference tournament in March as needed.  The goal of the band is to provide an exciting atmosphere for the players and fans of UNCP basketball.

The pep band rehearsal schedule is MWF 3:35-5:30pm, though it is flexible based on the basketball schedule and the needs of the ensemble.  After the tournament(s) in March, the pep band does not meet except at the discretion of the director.
