The goal of the Pep Band is to provide entertainment and spirit at sporting events, pep rallies, and special events for Northeastern University Athletics, and the University as a whole. The band plays at all home Men’s Hockey, and Men’s and Women’s Basketball games, as well as several other sporting events, and other special events such as Convocation.
The Pep Band also participates in all major tournaments, such as the Men’s and Women’s Basketball CAA division finals (in Baltimore, MD starting in 2014), the Hockey East Finals, and the long-standing Beanpot tournament. The Men’s Beanpot is played annually at the TD Garden (Home of the Boston Bruins & Boston Celtics), and the Women’s tournament rotates amongst the four schools involved in both Beanpots: Harvard, Boston University, Boston College, and of course, Northeastern.
The Pep Band is supported by the Athletics Department, Student Activities and the SGA. Since the appointment of John Leonard as a full-time faculty director in January of 2012, the band has grown in number, and continues to improve musically. Be a part of the fastest growing band in Boston!
