Welcome to the Northeastern University Pep Band website! Here you can find information such as what songs we play, what games we play at, and how you can become involved. Check out the Leadership tab to see who makes up the Pep Band student council, or go to the Policies tab to find out what we wear at each athletic event. If you have any questions, you can e-mail them to email@example.com.
Our band has approximately 80-90 members from all different grades and majors. During the regular season, we play at all home Men’s and Women’s Hockey, Men’s and Women’s Basketball, and Women’s Volleyball games. Occasionally, we might play at a Men’s Crew game or two. You can watch all of these athletic events and more on GONUxstream.
The Band plays a wide variety of music, from “Carry on My Wayward Son” and “Love on Top” to “Muppet Theme Song” and “Light ‘Em Up”. The cheerleaders and dance team have a routine to “Party Rock Anthem” which we play at half time in Basketball games. Some songs commonly requested by the Dog House are “Stacy’s Mom”, “Hey Song”, and “Go NU”. At the end of every game, we play and sing our fight song “All Hail”.
During the Spring Semester, we also have the opportunity to travel to tournaments and support our teams if they are not playing at home. The band has traveled to Richmond, VA and Baltimore, MD for the Men’s Basketball tournament, to Washington DC for the Women’s Basketball team, to Hyannis, MA for Women’s Hockey East Tournament, and more! We also play at the Men’s Beanpot tournament at TD Garden, and at the Women’s Beanpot tournament (both in February).
In the fall we have rehearsals on Wednesdays and Sundays for the first two months of the school year, and in the spring we have a few rehearsals on Sundays for people just joining the band or coming back from Co-op. There will be signs posted around campus for the dates of these rehearsals, but also check our Facebook and Twitter accounts for more information.
