The exciting, high-energy FHSU Pep Band performs at all Men's and Women's home basketball games. The Pep Band has earned a reputation as one of the best and most creative in the MIAA Conference and helps make Gross Memorial Coliseum one of the toughest places for Tiger foes to win. (Just ask any opposing player who fouls out.) Each spring the band hits to road supporting the Tigers' post-season efforts in the MIAA Conference and NCAA tournaments.
The Pep Band regular roster and substitute list is determined by audition at the beginning of October with students trying out on piccolo, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, mellophone, trombone, baritone, sousaphone, electric bass, and drum set. Audition music typically comes from the Marching Band season. All Pep Band members receive a stipend for their service based on the number of games played.
