The University of the Pacific Pep Band has long been regarded as one of the nation's finest. Under the direction Dr. Eric Hammer, from the Conservatory of Music, the Pep Band is a talented group of students who love music and enjoy supporting Pacific Athletics. The Pep Band rehearses once a week, and performs at Men's and Women's Basketball and Women's Volleyball matches.
There is no pre-requisite to join the Pep Band; students of all musical backgrounds are welcome. Since 1996, the Pep Band has grown in size and prestige, now boasting over fifty members, and a student directorate of dedicated students who work hard to ensure that all members have a fun and rewarding experience. The Pacific Pep Band also receives annual financial support from its sponsor, General Mills.
Recent highlights include a performance at Disneyland, the Big West Conference Tournament in Anaheim, NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament games in Kansas City, Boise, and Salt Lake City.
