“This is purely a fun activity that they get to do and have fun with their friend,” band director Dathan Echols said.

On every home game the basketball team never fails to plays with spirit. With a total of 140 members, approximately 100 to 110 members of the pep band are performing on the sidelines to support the team during each home game.

The band mainly plays during the basketball season but they sometimes play during the football season and at other sporting events. They play approximately 20 songs within the genres of R&B, hip-hop and pop. An hour before each game is the only time the band practices the 20 to 30 songs they know.
